The Iris Film Festival showcases films and videos of Indiana University students and people around Bloomington, Indiana. Now in it’s fourth year, the festival will take place on May 1 at 7:00 pm in Fine Arts 015.
The festival will feature about 20 films entries chosen by a committee of Communication and Culture graduate students. The entries’ themes range from documentary, music videos, melodrama, comedy, and experimental.
Awards include Best Screenwriting, Best Editing, Best Cinematography, and the Brian Friedman award for the best project created in a Communication and Culture class. An honorary audience award is also given each year. The judges this year will be Gregory A. Waller, Joan Hawkins, and Stephanie DeBoer, all professors in Communication and Culture, and Josh Vasquez, a Ph.D. student in Communication and Culture.
