Yet another update to our student-themed event coming up this Friday at the Bug Theatre… It will now be an “exhibition” rather than a competition. We’ll be playing a great batch of student films, as well as a fine selection of shorts from Festivus 08. Entry into the event is now FREE so grab your friends and come watch some great movies! Say hi to the Festivus staff and who knows, maybe we’ll buy you a drink. The screenings kick off at 7:00. Any questions? Drop us an email!

So via the Colorado Student Film Comp students now have the potential for 3 Colorado screenings of their work. Not bad!It’s only 3 weeks until the deadline, so download your ENTRY SHEET and send in your entry today!

Indestructible was one of the big hits of Festivus ’08. The film chronicles the challenges of filmmaker Ben Byers from diagnosis of ALS to present time. This was the only film to receive 5/5 from every screener on the Festivus screening panel. Festivus donated $200 dollars to the Indestructible production fund, and I would urge everyone out there to see this incredible film. Check out their website: www.indestructiblefilm.com
Opens in Madison on May 2, LA on May 16.
