Let's Go: Eastern Connecticut State University hosts first film festival
Eastern Connecticut State University’s Department of Performing Arts will celebrate the creativity of its students at the first-ever Eastern Film Festival on Dec. 3 and 4. Films will be showcased both evenings at 7:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Instructional Proscenium Theater.
The students’ films address topics including COVID-19, antiracism, poetry, life changes and more. The festival is broken up into four categories: “Covid and Me,” “Changes,” “Poetry Films” and “Anti-Racism and Social Justice.” The short films were made over the course of two years and several film-making courses led by professor Brian Day.
Tickets are free for Eastern students upon completion of a short survey; $5 for other students and groups of 10 or more; $12 for Eastern faculty, staff, alumni and senior citizens; and $20 for the general public. To purchase tickets, visit https://easternct.showare.com/film2021
