Santa Monica College will present its traditional end-of-semester screening of student films produced by members of the SMC Student Filmmakers Association (Film Club) Saturday, Dec. 10.

The film festival showcases the entire fall semester’s works of SMC student filmmakers.

The event is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. in Room 165 of the Humanities and Social Sciences Complex on the main campus, 1900 Pico Blvd., Santa Monica. Admission and parking are free. Seating is limited and is on a first-arrival basis.

The semi-annual public exhibition of student films will feature short films ranging across all genres and offers a wide diversity of filmmaking visions, a film club spokesperson said.

The SMC Student Filmmakers Association is one of the Inter-Club Council’s most popular student organizations on campus. Films are made independently from SMC’s film production classes, on low budgets, are completely student-financed, and are mostly shot on digital video and edited on home computer systems.

Some of the club’s members are also film studies majors at SMC, and many have aspirations to go on to more advanced study at major film schools such as UCLA and USC. In addition, the club’s most serious filmmakers have aspirations to work professionally in the motion picture industry as writers, directors, and producers, the club spokesperson notes.

The student film festival is sponsored by the SMC Communication Department in association with the Student Filmmakers Association.
