Simon Fraser University’s second year film students are hosting a screening on Tuesday May 1st to premiere seven ambitious new short films to the public. These seven films, shot on analogue 16mm in the recent spring and fall, are collaborative projects made by a group of twenty students. This student work promises to reflect not only the intensive labour that goes into these productions, but also the diversity and deeply passionate character of the second year class of 2012. Please invite your family and friends to share this special, once-a-year experience with the filmmakers.

In third year, the film students at SFU have the opportunity to direct two short projects in the span of a year. The ambitious class this year, however, apparently do not believe in doing anything small, and have laboured hard to produce a slate of films that are impressive in both scale and imagination. The term “short film” seems hardly adequate to describe these projects.
Join them and their collaborators on Thursday April 12th at 7pm in the Djavad Mowafaghian Cinema at SFU Woodwards (the Goldcorp Center for the Arts) at 149 West Hastings Street in Vancouver. This event is totally free, and is open to anyone and everyone.

Our precious young first year talent will be screening their second semester work on Tuesday April 10th at 7pm in the David Mowafaghian Cinema inside of SFU Woodwards (the Goldcorp Center for the Arts) at 149 West Hastings Street. This event is totally free, and everyone is welcome to attend.
Please join the filmmakers, along with their friends and family, to celebrate what is truly a unique experience. Non-narrative, low-budget cinema shot on authentic 16mm film stock. For these students, exploring the medium at its most fundamental level often yields some of the most exciting and creatively ambitious work that SFU Film, and any film school in the city for that matter, has to offer.
