The festival will feature five short films written, filmed and directed by Milligan students.
“The annual Short Film Festival is a great opportunity to see the creative work of Milligan students,” said Kenny Suit, assistant professor of cinema. “The directors have worked hard on these films, which feature actors and crew members from Milligan. Most of the screenplays were written by our students as well.”
Junior fines arts major Taylor Williams will present “Lady Umbrella”, a thriller that follows a detective, his partner and a woman of mystery.
“The short film festival is my favorite event of the spring semester,” said Williams. “It’s the one night I get to showcase what I love creating most to the Milligan community.”
