52nd Annual Film Finals This Week!
An SF State tradition since the Cinema Department’s inception in the 1960s, Film Finals is the annual showcase of juried student films from the past academic year (2011–2012). Demonstrating narrative and experimental approaches to film practice by way of 16mm, Digital-SLR and animation (to name a few), Cinema students trek on the frontiers of visuality and storytelling for a night of outstanding film work. The evening program screens 7-10pm in Creative Arts, McKenna Theatre,
Friday May 11; get tickets here.
But let’s cut to the chase for ASIFA-SF fans: The Animation Finals will kick off the day on Friday, May 11, 3 pm. The program screens in the Coppola Theater of the Fine Arts Building. FREE, public invited—but get there early, it’s always a SRO event!
And if you’re ready for a butt-numbing commitment, the Film Previews will be going on ALL DAY on Monday, May 7, 10am-5pm. Come and vote for your favorites, in this two-day marathon screening of about 80–100 student films.
