Spring 2021 End of Semester Screenings

Taking place online & at a drive-in theatre May 12–17

As we near the end of yet another unusual semester, the department of Radio-Television-Film welcomes the public to watch and celebrate our students' work. Our students have demonstrated enormous creativity and perseverance, producing films under extraordinary circumstances. We look forward to presenting this spring's student films from Wednesday, May 12–Monday, May 17, via both virtual screenings (Wed-Sat) and at in-person, drive-in screenings (Sun-Mon).

DRIVE-IN SCREENINGS
The department will also host drive-in screenings at Doc's Drive-In Theatre in Buda, Texas, of the undergraduate thesis films on Sunday, May 16th, and first-year graduate-student narrative films on Monday, May 17th.
