Student filmmakers from Aquidneck Island will showcase their short films at the Aquidneck Island Student Film Festival on Monday, April 29, 2019.
This year’s film festival will be held on the Salve Regina campus in Bazarsky Hall, located in the O’Hare Academic building at 6:00PM.
The festival now enters its second year, and it will again feature a $250 prize in two categories: Best Original Short and Best Documentary.
In addition to the two categories, featuring about 10 films, Salve Regina film students and Portsmouth High School film students will showcase an original short film from their respective programs.
These collaborative film projects represent a culmination of skills, creativity, and technique taught in each film program. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m., films will begin screening promptly at 6:30 p.m., and is free to the public.
The Aquidneck Island Student Film Festival supports the emerging voices in film by providing the young student filmmakers of Rhode Island an opportunity to showcase their work.
