Fall 2021 End-of-Semester Screenings

December 9–12, 2021

Back in theaters!

After three quarantined semesters, the RTF community is finally coming together to celebrate our student films the way they were designed to be enjoyed—with an audience. From animation to documentary, CGI to drama... this semester's student work will be on display to the public from Thursday, December 9–Sunday, December 12.

The free screenings and demonstrations will take place at various venues, including a full day of graduate student films on Saturday, December 11th and an Emergent Cinematic Arts showcase (& pizza party!) on Thursday, December 9th. Read on for the schedule and details.

Note: We kindly ask our audience members to wear a face mask over their nose and mouth.
