The student film festival “Montage: A Celebration of Moving Pictures” will start at 7 p.m. Saturday at the IU Cinema.
The festival highlights films made by IU-Bloomington students on campus during the 2018-2019 school year. Different genres will be featured, including documentary, narrative and experimental films.
This year’s festival will feature 12 different films, including the eight-minute animated short “Laya,” a collaboration among 40 students and staff members who used motion capture technology and the video game design engine Unreal to make the film.
The event will also include an awards ceremony where films will be chosen based on best director, cinematography, script, editing, performances and more. Finally, awards will be given for the best scripted and nonscripted films.
The festival is sponsored by the IU Cinema, the Media School, the Eskenazi School of Art, Architecture + Design, the IU Cinema Academy and the Department of Theatre, Drama and Contemporary Dance.
The event is free but ticketed. Tickets are available online.
