UC Davis Film Festival returns


The Davis Varsity Theatre will host this year’s UC Davis Film Festival on Wednesday and Thursday, May 25–26, at 8:30 p.m. The festival, produced by Theatre and Dance, Technocultural Studies and Film Studies, and Art Studio, gives students the opportunity to present their short films and receive feedback from faculty who are professionals in film, television, and new media.   When asked what drew them to the festival, many past and current participants noted the opportunity to see their work on the ‘big screen,’ as well as the chance to engage with UC Davis faculty in the arts. Via a pre-submission schedule, students are offered constructive criticism and help with how to take their work to the next level. In addition to student producer Pamela Orebaugh, the festival is directed by three UC Davis faculty producers: Professors Sarah Pia Anderson and John Iacovelli, Department of Theatre and Dance, and Professor Jesse Drew, Technocultural Studies. The faculty producers serve as advisors along with other UC Davis faculty: Jaimey Fisher, Film Studies and German; Darrin Martin, Art Studio; Maggie Morgan, Theatre and Dance; Pablo Ortiz, Music; and Julie Wyman, Technocultural Studies. To read more about the festival, go here; to view past years’ winning films, go here.

Tickets are $7 and $10 and will be available at the Davis Varsity Theatre box office starting May 18.
