Senior Film Thesis Screenings Start Tonight

The film theses are back! Since there are 27 films this year, the film department has organized the screenings a bit differently – there will only be ONE viewing session for each film and NO REPEATS THIS WEEKEND, unfortunately (though they will be screened again on Friday and Saturday of Senior Week.)

The 2013 Thesis Film Screenings

The Wesleyan Thesis Films 2013 – Trailer from Ethan Young on Vimeo.

The screenings of the 2013 Thesis films are this weekend. All showings are in the Goldsmith Family Cinema. 16mm is Friday 8pm, Sunday 2pm. Digitals are Saturday and Sunday at 8pm. Tickets are $5. They are sold on a first come, first serve basis, limited to one per person, and go on sale 45 minutes before showtime.

Important note: The film screenings did not sell out last year either of the opening nights. Although many folks show up especially early to get good seats, please do not let that discourage you from arriving much closer to the showtime. We want as many people as humanely possible to enjoy our films.

On each night of the film screenings we will announce on the Facebook event page when/if the tickets have sold out. If you do not see a post on there, assume that seats are still available and come down.

The screening order is:

Wesleyan Film Thesis Screenings

One does not simply walk into the film thesis screenings.

You knew it was coming, now it’s here.  Doors open 45 minutes before each showing. Get there EARLY, everyone will be trying to crash this party.  Each film runs under 13 minutes. Total run time for each screening will be about 2 hours.  The films are (in the order of their screening):

Friday, May 11 (8PM) and Sunday, May 13 (2PM)

Wesleyan Film Theses 2012: Part One — The Fellowship of the Text

It all began with the forging of the Great Papers.  Seven were given to the Film Studies Professors; immortal, wisest and fairest of all beings. And now those seven will be gifted to the race of Wesleyan Students, who above all else desire power. For within these papers was bound the strength and the will to govern over an entire campus.

This is it, folks. Come hear six great screenplay pitches and one historical/theoretical rundown from seven amazing senior Film majors.  The chosen few and their works are:

Douglas Bensimon ’12: The Nazi
Carolyn Cohen ’12: Squanderland
William Donald ’12: Off the Trail
Miriam Smith-Drelich ’12: Goodnight, Sunshine
Zachary J. Valenti ’12: Smokin’ Ocean
Jeremy P. Wolf ’12: Camp Goggles
Sarah Shachat ’12: Intrigue, Blood, and Naked Breasts: Strategies of the Epic Series on Premium Cable

Jeanine Basinger, head of the Department of Film Studies, says this is the best collection of written work she’s seen at Wesleyan. And she’s seen A LOT here.
