WESFLIX Short Film Festival

wesflix

From Rizky Rahadianto ’15:

Just like Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Leia Solo (nee Organa) bravely fought the Empire, so did Wesflix fight the power of those opposed to promiscuous filmmaking.

A small collective of sophomores have banded together to present a collection of pieces done solely out of love for the craft and dedication to the arts. Each work is a student production from start to finish, the vision of each artist in its purest form.

You could treat this as your pre-game to the Digital Thesis Film Screening and Film Ball in your filmy weekend. We wouldn’t be offended.
