Local Screening of Final Cut will Showcase Student-Made Films from BYU Seniors
Witness the arts in action at "Final Cut," the culminating work of seniors from BYU's media arts program. This public event will be held on Friday, September 22 and Saturday, September 23 at the Megaplex Theatres at Geneva. The showing will feature short fiction, non-fiction and animated films all produced by student teams.
The Department of Theatre and Media Arts chair Megan Sanborn Jones said, “The Advanced Film Projects created by media arts students, under the supervision of our outstanding film faculty, are fully-executed short films created in a professional model. These films are smart, funny, moving, creative and inspiring. They give a glimpse into the future of filmmaking in America. We are thrilled to share them in this premiere screening event and hope everyone comes to support TMA’s young filmmakers. We are confident you will have a wonderful evening with us at the movies.”
One of the featured films, "Do you See Me," is directed by Camille Gottscheck and produced by Ailed Cazares. This heartwarming documentary is about a blind musician and educator, Kyle Woodruff. "En Tierra Ajena y Desconocida," written/directed by Ricardo Villanueva Avalo and produced by Emily Colton, is a semi-autobiographical film about an immigrant family's experiences and challenges living in a new country.
All audiences are welcome to come enjoy a night at the student-made movies.
