Films created by Western Carolina University students will be screened at the eighth annual Controlled Chaos Film Festival in the John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center at 7 p.m. Friday, April 29.
Tickets are $10 cash at the door. Proceeds and donations benefit the Motion Picture Student Project Fund, which helps students in WCU’s Film and Television Production Program with the cost of creating their senior thesis films.
“There are all sorts of student-made films that will be showcased, including this year’s senior project film, ‘Love is the Longest Con,’ and free food, photo ops and more,” said Mikayla Ronnow, a student spokesman for the festival. “I think it will be the perfect night to put on your fanciest black tie, if you’d like, and provide encouragement to your fellow students in support of their artistic efforts while having a fun evening out.”
Along with “Love is the Longest Con,” there will be showings of a web series titled “Senior Nightmare,” two senior project documentaries and several other student-produced films.
Several of the films have mature subject matter and are not suitable viewing for children. For more information, contact the Film and Television Production Program at 828-227-7491.
