SOUTHFIELD, Mich. – The Broke Student Film Festival returns for its second year of screening student-made films on Friday, April 5, at 6:30 p.m. at Lawrence Technological University, 21000 West 10 Mile Road, Southfield. The films will be shown free in the Marburger Science and Engineering Auditorium in the Science Building.
The second annual film festival will have live music, free pizza and popcorn, and prize raffles.
The Broke Student Film Festival was founded in 2012 by LTU film and video student
Kathryn Ruff to give student filmmakers the opportunity to exhibit their creations on the big screen. Last year students from Lawrence Tech, Washtenaw Community College, Oakland
Community College, and Schoolcraft College entered 14 films.
More films have been entered for this year’s festival, including submissions from the United Kingdom and India.
A jury of film industry professionals will select the best overall film as well as winners for Best Film, Best Directing, Best Acting, Best Sound, Best Cinematography, Best Editing, and Best Marketing Campaign. The Audience Choice Award will also be presented based on votes from the audience at the April 5 screening.
