Student Films Chosen for Inaugural Chaffey Film Festival

February 5, 2013 by University of La Verne

Several University of La Verne students’ films will be featured in the Chaffey Review Film Festival February 9.

“Bettlemania,” by Ariel Devore, “Encaustic Tile” by Kaitlin Hollingsworth and “The Folk Music Center” by Marianna Pignotti, Anthony Troli, McKinley Pollock, and Chelsea Stark-Jones, were accepted for inaugural festival. Student film directors are also invited to participate in a short question and answer session after their films are shown.

A student committee chose the films for the event and judged each film based on production quality, narrative strength, artistic elements and entertainment value. There were eight short films and one feature length documentary chosen.

Other participants include professional and emerging directors, as well as Academy Award nominated Deborah Dickson. The event is free and will also include performances by Becky Holt and her band, which have a music video that will be featured during the festival.

The festival will be held in the Chaffey College Theater located at 5885 Haven Avenue, Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91737. Doors open at 5 p.m. Showings will take place 6 p.m. – 9 p.m.
