2006 "Final Cut" to showcase BYU student films Nov. 7-11

The Brigham Young University Department of Theatre and Media Arts will present its annual film festival, “Final Cut,” Nov. 7-11.

This year’s festival will include a variety of films in three screenings. Program A will screen at 7 p.m. and Program B at 9 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday in the Wilkinson Student Center’sVarsity Theater. The 2006 Final Cut selections, taken from both programs, will be shown Friday and Saturday at 6 and 8 p.m. in the Joseph Smith Building auditorium.

Tickets for Programs A and B will be $4 in advance and $5 at the door, and admission for the Final Cut selections program will be $5 in advance and $6 at the door. Tickets can be purchased at the Wilkinson Student Center Information Desk.

The films run from 30 seconds to 25 minutes and span the narrative, documentary, experimental and animation genres. Commercials were also eligible for the festival.

Proceeds from the festival will be used to fund future student film projects, scholarships and equipment needs.

The festival has been a springboard for student filmmakers to larger opportunities. Jared Hess’ “Peluca” became the forerunner of “Napoleon Dynamite”; the BYU animation program’s “Lemmings” earned the honor of best animation picture from the Student Academy Awards; and “The Last Good War” by Ryan Little eventually became the award-winning “Saints and Soldiers.”
