HowesLocationBroke Student Film Festival Returns to Lawrence Tech April 4-6

(LTU Press Release, March 24, 2014)

The Broke Student Film Festival returns for its 3rd year at LTU. Films by students from Michigan and from around the globe will be featured on the big screen April 4th-6th. Students will also be able to meet, and learn from film and video professionals. Local bands will be performing throughout the weekend.

Tickets are free for all students or a small donation for non-students. From April 4th through April 6th, Lawrence Technological University in Southfield, MI will be playing host to the 3rd Annual International BTLWeddingExpo_144x360Broke Student Film Festival.

Started by alumnus Kathryn Ruff in 2012, the Festival reaches out to student filmmakers from Southeast Michigan and around the world. The Broke Student Film Festival is one of the only venues in Michigan that gives aspiring student filmmakers the opportunity to see their work screened in a theater in front of a live audience and receive feedback from professionals with decades of experience in the film and video industry.

In addition to the screenings, the Broke Student Film Festival is also hosting a series of educational workshops that are free to attend for students and are geared toward teaching students how to survive and thrive in the film and video industry. These workshops will be taught by industry professionals and will take place in the morning and early afternoon of Saturday, April 5th before the competitive screenings. Also during this time, the Festival will host a meet and greet that will invite students to meet and talk to DDAsample01industry partners from around the Southeast Michigan area. This networking opportunity will be invaluable to students and businesses alike, connecting talent with opportunity.
