Princeton Student Film Festival to Take Place August 3rd

(PRINCETON, NJ) -- The 2022 Princeton Student Film Festival will be held Wednesday, August 3 at the Princeton Public Library. Screenings will begin at 6:30pm in the library’s Community Room. Many of the filmmakers will be in attendance to talk about and answer questions about their films.

The festival, in its 19th year, features 10 short works by high school and college students from the Princeton area and throughout the United States. Genres include animation, comedy, dramatic feature, documentary, experimental, personal narrative and thrillers.

“The student film festival is a great chance for student filmmakers to show their work to a live audience, and to share their insight and get feedback,” said Youth Services Department Head Susan Conlon who coordinates the event. “The films are inspired and imaginative and reflect the filmmakers’ commitment to developing their visual and technical craft and the art of good storytelling.”

Films to be shown include: “Hatching a Plan” by Charlotte Anthony from Hillview Middle School in California; “BAIRN” by Kaushik Tare, Rutgers University; “Moving Pictures” by Angel James, Ithaca College; “Gum” by Melanie Kardos, Ithaca College; “Sion Papi” by Anne Fernandez, Syracuse University; “Calibrate” by Ryan Gallagher, Skillman; “Bowling With the Best of You” by Alli Rayef, Mercer County Community College; “The Fight for Eternal Life” by Justin Vasquez, Mercer County Community College; “Walking in Circles” by Devan Sakaria, Princeton Day School; and “Green Cities, Green Deals” by James Baratta, Ithaca College. 

The films will also be available to watch online and on demand on the library’s Eventive platform August 4-7.
