Student Film Festival set for Angell Blackfriars Theatre, Smith Center for the Arts


Providence College’s Department of Theatre, Dance and Film presents an annual festival competition of films in all genres made by current PC students. These short films, ranging from 5 to 12 minutes long, will be judged by invited jurors, and prizes will be provided by the Rhode Island International Film Festival.  The event will be held in the Angell Blackfriars Theatre in the Smith Center for the Arts on May 2nd at 6 PM.  The Film Festival is an opportunity for student film artists to showcase their films before peers and the public and to receive feedback and inspiration to continue in their craft.
