The Department of Theatre and Film will present a public screening of its film students’ best work. The 2017 University of Toledo Student Filmmakers Showcase will take place Saturday, April 22, at 7:30 p.m. in the Center for Performing Arts Center Theatre.

The event is a sensory experience filled with artistry and variety, a film lover’s annual favorite. Chosen in juried competition, entries include film, video and animation projects created as part of the curriculum.

“The opportunity to showcase my films next to my peers makes the entire experience worth it,” Evan Sennett, film student, said. “As director of the Film Curators Club, I can honestly say this is the most exciting screening of the year.”

Holly Hey, associate professor and head of film, agreed: “The showcase is a night to celebrate the work that gets screened, and it’s also a night to celebrate the community of creative culture within the Film/Video Program at UT. I’m proud of everyone involved, and want to share our successes with the local communities on and off campus.”

The Film Curators Club will provide free concessions during the screening and host a free after party following the showcase. Door prizes will add to the evening’s festivities.

Tickets are $10 for general admission and $5 for UT employees/students/alumni, seniors 60 and older, children and members of the military. Advance tickets are available through the Center for Performing Arts Box at 419.530.2787 or online here.
