For Loyola filmmakers, final grades on film projects are riding on interactive audience scoring during the 16th Student Film Festival. Sponsored by the Film Buffs Institute, the film fest features a mix of entirely student-produced documentaries, fiction and music videos.
Free and open to the public, audience members receive complimentary popcorn and a form to grade each individual piece. Free parking is available in Loyola’s West Road Garage accessible from St. Charles Avenue.
Short films include:
- a documentary on people who seem to live at a neighborhood barber shop,
- a documentary on the many odd uses of vinyl records in 2013 New Orleans,
- an adaptation of the Hemingway story “Hills Like White Elephants” re-enacted by bananas,
- a fiction piece about a person driven mad by a cellphone,
- a live concert film featuring three acoustic musical groups performing in graveyards.
