Lycoming College and the Film and Video Arts Department will screen eight short student films at the 15th annual Onscreen Film Festival, slated for Sept. 29 at the AMC Classic 11 in Williamsport, Pa. The screening is free and open to the public, and tickets to the screening can be reserved at OnScreenFF ticket RSVP.
Since its start in 2008 as a local screening, the OnScreen Film Festival (formerly known as the Pennsylvania College Student Film and Video Festival) has grown to include film submissions the world over. This year’s films are from the United States, Italy, Germany, Croatia, Indonesia, Hungary, China, Mexico, Russian Federation, France, Iran, Poland, Belgium, Serbia, Turkey, Uzbekistan, Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, Burkina Faso, Hong Kong, United Kingdom, Taiwan, and Israel. The online screening of official selections, including award-winning films, will take place from Sept. 30-Oct. 14 at OnScreenFF.
“I’m thrilled to share these incredible films from talented international emerging filmmakers. To be able to screen the only international film festival in the region is quite exciting and I hope to draw the local community to the event,” said Bedrosian Peterson, festival director and professor of film and video arts at Lycoming College. “This year we received 880 submissions from 72 countries, including submissions in a new graduate school category. Our newly appointed festival selection committee members, Mitch Wheary and Emily Shaffer, selected semi-finalists from which the official selections were determined. Judges Tom Woodruff Jr., Levi Woodward, Christina Moliterno, Joshua R. Troxler, Stephen St. Francis Decky, and I are honored to announce the winning films from such a talented group.” More information is available at Festival Committee and Judges.
