12th Annual UCD Film Festival

by

It’s time again for the UC Davis Film Festival hosted by the Davis Varsity Theatre. The 12th annual festival of short films plays Wednesday and Thursday, May 25–26, at 8:30 p.m.

This year’s submissions include a mockumentary about a washed-up child star, a comedy where three twenty-somethings attain mundane abilities after eating a very old casserole, an existential drama about a woman struggling with her life’s purpose, an animated action hero adventure and a documentary about finding the perfect bone marrow donor.

This years finalists survived a rigorous selection process. According to film festival adviser and Art Studio Professor Darrin Martin, “student enthusiasm for more sophisticated approaches to expressing themselves through filmmaking is on the rise as they strive to master the language of a media-saturated culture. Curiosity for the voices of tomorrow’s storytellers, animators, and moving image makers should be the motivating factor to get the public out for two evenings of entertaining and thought provoking works.”

Tickets are $7 and $10, available at the Davis Varsity Theatre box office starting May 16.
