The upcoming second annual Algonquin Short Film
Festival is aiming to showcase some of the finest talent that students have to
Lynn Tarzwell, coordinator of the scriptwriting program, was pleased with the success of the festival last year and is looking forward to what will come of it this year.
“They did a bang-up job of pulling it together,” Tarzwell said of last year’s festival. “It’s always a lot of fun and we get a really interesting range of films.”
Sean Hockey and Alex Williams are both second year TV broadcasting students who have teamed up with some of their classmates to enter the festival.
Their film, entitled “Nightfall,” is about the aftermath of a fixed boxing match that also involved some betting and the linking of different characters.
“It’s cool to be entering (a contest) where we can showcase what we’ve learned,” Hockey said. “It’s also good to get feedback.”
“I am excited,” Williams said through an e-mail statement. “For me the thrill was getting the idea onto screen. If people like it then great, but ultimately I am happy with the way it turned out.”
“We’re all looking forward to it,” Hockey said.
The film festival will take place on Monday, April 11 here at the college.
