The Starz First Look Student Film Festival, produced in part by the Denver Film Society, has announced that over 50 short films will be showcased at the fifth annual short film festival running April 21, 22 and 23 at the Starz FilmCenter. This premier student festival screens short films from undergraduate, graduate and recently graduated college and university students from around the world. Works from an explosive array of talented filmmakers will be shown from: USC, NYU, Polish National Film School, University of Colorado – Denver, CU-Boulder, American Film Institute, Munich Film School, UCLA, Russian National Film School, Stanford, UC-Berkeley, National Academy of Bulgaria, Victorian College of the Arts and School of Film and TV – Australia and many more.
Those attending the festival will be treated to a unique and diverse line-up of shorts chosen from the best narrative, documentary, animation and experimental films submitted to the festival. Come see what’s being produced at film schools from around the world and presented to us from today’s next wave of filmmakers. “If you are interested in independent film and are looking to find shorts that are not made for commercial purposes, then you don’t want to miss this festival.” said Josh Weinberg, one of the festival co-founders. “There’s something for everyone at this year’s festival. From coming of age narratives presented to us from the eyes of young filmmakers, to interesting documentaries that look at the disabled, the catholic church and our American prison system.” And, if that’s not enough, “There’s even a wild zombie, killing spree and sci-fi late night package of shorts that can only be viewed by those who would dare to look at the ghostly, strange and macabre.”
