Blue and White Student Film Festival

The Blue and White Student Film Festival, coordinated by the Penn State Student Film Organization, will take place Saturday, April 26, beginning at 7 PM at the State Theatre in downtown State College. Caleb Yoder, a student in SoVA's Interdisciplinary Digital Studio program, is president of the Student Film Organization.

The yearly festival, organized in collaboration with the College of Communications, celebrates the creative achievements of students from across the University. Showcasing the best in student film at Penn State, the films embody a variety of styles and topics.

This year’s festival received more than 40 entries for consideration by a panel of Penn State faculty experts and professional alumni. Penn State School of Visual Arts faculty Madis Pihlak and Michael Collins and graduate student Gabriel Ibias were part of the panel.

“The types of films in the festival typically include everything from narrative projects to experimental productions, animations, and documentaries,” said Yoder. “This is really a chance for Penn State and the State College community to recognize the achievements of film students at Penn State. A lot of people are impressed with the quality of the student films.”

The students whose films are selected will have their work exhibited on the big screen during the festival's red carpet event. For additional information visit:
