Films Before Finals (NYC)

News Story

Or shall we say movies before mayhem? Take a break from finals studying and step out of the Netflix zone as 24 film and screen studies students debut films on May 7 on the NYC Campus.

If you got locked out of the Tribeca Film Festival shorts program you were eyeing or have just finished binge-watching Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, hashbrown NBD. You’ve got the chance to see some student films for free before they become huge stars.

Stop by the Spring 2015 Student Film screening, featuring Film and Screen Studies students' 25 films, on Thursday, May 7, at 6:00 p.m. in the Schimmel Theater on the NYC Campus. The students—from first-year students to graduating seniors—wrote, produced, directed, and edited the films as part of their FSS 204: 16mm Film Production course, FSS 301: Filmmaking: Image and Sound course, and independent projects.

The student filmmakers and their films are as follows:
