What: Purdue Student Film Festival
When: February 27th, from 7-10pm
Where: Fowler Hall, in the Stewart Center
Who: PSUB and Purdue film students
How much: FREE!
While probably not the first film festival here at Purdue University, it is PSUB’s first film festival event. And they hope to make it an annual occurrence, which is a tradition I can stand behind. I am looking forward to seeing our local film students flex their creative muscle. And who’s to say we won’t see the next James Cameron in the making?
Also lucky for us, PSUB has made this event completely free to students and the public. Refreshments will also be provided during the event, but I’m guessing we’ll have to bring our own popcorn!
PSUB is an amazing student organization here at Purdue. They host a lot of local student attractions, from open-mic nights and Homecoming Parades to Mystery Dinner Theaters. And most often than not, PSUB holds some of the most entertaining Purdue events.
Callouts for the student film submissions actually began a few months ago, back in October 2015. PSUB urged students to bring in the films or shorts they created to be used in future PSUB event. And it seems that paid off, with the film festival being held only 3 months later. In my opinion, that’s an impressive feat for their first ever event of this nature.
While the event isn’t for a few days, it’s still something I’m looking forward to. This will actually be my first student film festival I’ve been to, and I can’t wait to see the local talent! I hope any locals here will go too. Showing your support will only encourage these film festivals to become better and better, and help support these fledgling directors. So save the date, February 27th!
