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).
The event will be held at 6:30 p.m. Friday, June 1 in Room 165 of the Humanities & 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 short films features a wide diversity of filmmaking visions and voices representing SMC’s eclectic mix of national origins and ethnicities, according to the film club. Student filmmakers take great pride in showcasing their work to the campus community, as well as to the community at large, a film club spokesperson said.
Films from the association are made independently from SMC’s film production classes, on ultra-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 further their studies at major film schools such as UCLA and USC.
Some of the club’s most serious filmmakers have aspirations to work professionally in the motion picture industry as writers, directors, producers and more.
The student film festival is sponsored by the SMC Communication Department in association with the Student Filmmakers Association.
