William Woods to Host Annual Film Festival

William Woods University will host its third annual film festival on March 25 and 27 at 6 p.m. in the Library Auditorium.

The first night of the festival features short films from student and amateur filmmakers, and the second night features Academy Award-nominated short films, as well as short films from famous directors and studios.

Some of the featured films are live action, some are animated, and all range from two to approximately 15 minutes long. Each night, the festival will run approximately one hour.
“I always like to see what the students produce,” said Dr. Greg Smith, assistant professor English, who is in charge of planning the film festival.

In past years, the film festival has been a popular attraction for both WWU students and members of the community.

“It should be an enjoyable time, said Smith.” “We’re hoping to make it pleasant and a little bit different.”

The festival is sponsored by Smith and the Moviegoers student film club. For more information, contact Smith at greg.smith@williamwoods.edu or (573) 592-4399.
