NORTHFIELD, Vt. – Norwich University students will host a film festival to screen student-made short films from 7 to 9 p.m.on Friday, Feb. 21 in Mack Hall Auditorium. This event is free and open to the public.
The film festival is being hosted to give creative students in the Norwich community a platform to showcase short films or videos that they created while advancing themselves in screenplay writing, creative writing, production, filming, acting, video editing and other creative software used to complete their projects. This platform gives those involved an opportunity to continue improving themselves, learn from other students and receive valuable viewer feedback.
Some films may not be appropriate for young audiences.
Related to the film festival, there will be an independent screening of “They Shall Not Grow Old,” a documentary film on World War I, on from 5:30 to 7:45 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 20, 2020, in Mack Hall Auditorium. Using never-before-seen footage of World War I, this overlays the digitally remastered and in color footage with the voices of soldiers whose narratives — recorded in interviews in the 1960s and 1970s — relive their experiences on the Belgium front.
This event is hosted by the Norwich University Film Festival in partnership with the Peace and War Center and generously sponsored by the Norwich University Military Writers’ Symposium Associates. This film is rated R and is appropriate for viewers age 17+. This event is free and open to the public.
