Upcoming Event

Also screening at the GPFF is The Necklace, a 2012 Campus MovieFest entry by Clementine Leger ’12 and Billy Yates ’12. “We had the idea to talk about the issue of hunger, not necessarily in regards to homeless people, but people you would see every day and would have no idea that they are struggling to provide meals for their family,” Leger said.

The four-minute film, which won best drama at Rollins’ Campus MovieFest, is a fictional depiction of a mother and daughter and the struggle to have enough to eat.

Love Your Shorts Spotlight!

Working with Laura Cole,"Film in the Media Landscape"student Amanda Hampton has published her piece, "Behind the
Scenes:  Love Your Shorts Film Festival," on LYS 2012, in R-Net. Borrowing a journalistic idea from
Middlebury College (VT), Laura is launching a new student-written story initiative for R-Net
and Amanda's piece is part of that effort.
