Marshall to host 4th Annual Student Short Film Festival

Huntington – The Marshall University Film Studies program will present the 4th Annual Marshall University Student Short Film Festival at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 5, at the Joan C. Edwards Playhouse.

The festival will feature a screening of short films and videos created by Marshall students, and include a juried contest for “Best in Festival.”

“Similar to the previous Marshall student short film festivals, this year’s selections are highly innovative and diverse,” said Dr. Walter Squire, director of the film studies program. “In addition to narrative films in a variety of genres, there are avant-garde films and collages.”   

The event is free and open to the public, and will be followed by a reception with refreshments. Some films may be inappropriate for children.

The event is presented with support from the Department of English, the Marshall University film studies program, and Marshall University Libraries.
