The "West Coast Student Film Festival" will take place from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, April 20, in the August Coppola Theatre in the Fine Arts Building. Tickets can be purchased at the door and are $10 for general admission and $5 for students. An awards ceremony will take place in Coppola Theatre after the final film is screened (around 8 p.m.).
The festival features student-made films that have been selected from entries from more than 25 countries and from across the United States. Organized by senior cinema student Joey Garner, the festival includes dramatic and comedic works of fiction, documentary and animation. Films range in length from 90 seconds to 20 minutes.
The theme of the festival is "Overcoming Obstacles." More than 80 films will be screened including "Creativity Explored," a documentary about an art studio in the Mission District of San Francisco that serves individuals with physical and mental disabilities and "Photographic Memory," an exploration of one man's inner struggle that combines elements of drawing and computer-generated animation and surrealism.
Festival proceeds will benefit Push America, a nonprofit organization committed to raising funds for and awareness about people living with disabilities.
