Confederation College Rolls Out the Red Carpet for its Annual Film Night – Apr. 21
THUNDER BAY, ON, April 17, 2017 – This year’s graduating class of the Film Production program at Confederation College will be rolling out the red carpet for the annual Film Night to showcase their 32 original short films. The films, produced entirely by the students, will debut in the College’s Shuniah Building Lecture Theatre (Room 351) on Friday, April 21, 2017 at 7:00 p.m.
The general public is invited to join in for Film Night. Movie-goers can expect an eclectic anthology of film ranging from comedies to dramas and documentaries; there is truly something for everyone.
The program will include En Tze’s animation Bury Or Be Buried, a stop motion film about a newly adopted dog and cat who don’t get along, and Allen Naytowhow’s Windigo, a thriller about a legendary Ojibwa creature that is half man and half deer. The evening of entertainment will also include a couple of music videos and a romantic musical about a siren who falls in love with a human.
“Film making is very much a team sport,” noted student Guin Won who directed Change of Heart. “For me, the best part is being able to develop my film making skills by collaborating with other passionate individuals.”
Student Warren McGoey, who directed The Manitoba Cheese Run added “The film production program is very hands-on and it really gave me a strong foundation in technical knowledge.”
Lee Chambers, Film Professor at Confederation College, shared how proud he is of his students. “Film Night provides the unique opportunity for our students to showcase their work to the community,” he said. “It rewards the students for their hard work and allows the College to celebrate their completion of the Film Production program.”
Admission is free, but donations are welcomed in support of the Film Production program. Guests are encouraged to arrive by 6:45 p.m. For more information, visit www.conflix.co
