Attention film lovers of Lawrence!

Next weekend, 4/20 through 4/22, Lawrence will again be hosting the Associated Colleges of the Midwest’s Student Film Conference and Festival.

The Film Department has been working for months organizing 175 submissions from 10 different ACM colleges into what will be a whirlwind weekend of films, paper presentations, screenplay readings, and workshops given by film artists and professionals.

Events will start at 7pm on Friday, 4/20 in the Warch Cinema with members of IGLU performing a live scoring of a silent film. Stick around after their performance to catch the first film screening of the festival.

The majority of the films will be shown on Saturday the 21st, both at the Warch Cinema and Wriston Auditorium, with the screenplay readings and paper presentations happening on Sunday the 22nd. You can find the full schedule here:
