The University of Toledo Department of Theatre and Film will present a public screening of its film students’ best work. The 2019 University of Toledo Student Filmmakers’ Showcase will take place Friday, April 26, 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, the 20 entries scheduled to be shown include film, video and animation shorts created by University film students.

“Summer” by Ali Moussa, a junior majoring in film, is among the works to be screened in the 2019 Student Filmmakers’ Showcase.

The adjudicators for this year’s competition were Charlene Gilbert, dean of the College of Arts and Letters; Dr. Jeanne Kusina, associate lecturer of women’s and gender studies; and Barry Whittaker, associate professor of art.

The University of Toledo Film Curators Club and the UToledo Department of Theatre and Film co-host the event. The Film Curators Club is providing free concessions during the screening and hosting a Stanley Kubrick-themed after-party following the showcase. All are welcome.

Tickets to the showcase are $12 general admission and $8 for University employees, students, alumni, seniors 60 and older, children and military members.

Advance tickets are available through the Center for Performing Arts Box, by calling 419.530.2787, or online through the School of Visual and Performing Arts website. Tickets also will be sold the night of the showcase.
