Final Cut Film Festival returns to BYU April 8-9

The Final Cut Film Festival, which was the springboard for movies like “Napoleon Dynamite” and “Saints and Soldiers,” is returning to Brigham Young University Friday and Saturday, April 8-9, at 7 and 9:30 p.m. each night in the Pardoe Theatre.

Tickets cost $5 and are available now at byuarts.com/tickets or (801) 422-4322.

Final Cut is a student-produced, student-created film showcase at BYU. Sponsored by the Theatre and Media Arts Department in cooperation with the Student Film Association, the festival has been reestablished and is being held for the first time since 2008.

This year’s theme is “LOST!” and features more than 30 films. During four events, the festival will screen a collection of the best fiction films, documentaries, commercials, animations and shorts that students have created recently.

Two separate programs, which feature alternate screening schedules so that everyone can see every film, will be featured both nights. “Program A” will be held Friday at 7 p.m. and Saturday at 9:30 p.m., while “Program B” will be Friday at 9:30 p.m. and Saturday at 7 p.m.

Visit BYUFinalCut.com to view the full list of film titles or to read the festival blog.

For more information, contact Kyle Stapley, media arts administrative assistant, at (801) 422-4576 or kyle_stapley@byu.edu.
