Fourth Annual Student Short Film Festival set for Feb. 5


The Marshall University film studies program will present the 4th Annual Marshall University Student Short Film Festival at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 5, at the Joan C. Edwards Playhouse, featuring a screening of short films and videos created by Marshall students.

The event is free and open to the public, and will be followed by a reception with refreshments. Some films may be inappropriate for children.

“Similar to the previous Marshall student short film festivals, this year’s selections are highly innovative and diverse,” said Dr. Walter Squire, director of the film studies program. “In addition to narrative films in a variety of genres, there are avant-garde films and collages.”

The festival will include a juried contest for “Best in Festival.”

The event is presented with support from the Department of English, the Marshall University film studies program, and Marshall University Libraries. It is presented with financial assistance from the West Virginia Humanities Council, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations do not necessarily represent those of the West Virginia Humanities Council or the National Endowment for the Humanities.
