Student films to be screened at ETSU


JOHNSON CITY (March 27, 2014) – Short films and documentaries created by students at East Tennessee State University will be presented on Tuesday, April 8, at Real to Reel Theatre beginning at 7 p.m.

The works were produced by students in the radio, television, video and film (RTVF) program in ETSU's Department of Communication.

"This event sells out every year," said Shara Lange, who oversees the university's RTVF program. "We have a strong group of seniors right now as well as a new student film group called Buc Films that was established by one of our graduate students. Our RTVF students have access to state-of-the-art equipment right here in our own studios."

Lange said money raised from the event will support the Tom Headley Student Production Award, which will recognize outstanding film projects. A silent auction will also be held.

Headley is the founder and longtime supporter of ETSU's broadcasting program. He retired in 2010.

Tickets are $3 per person and can be bought at the Real to Reel box office.

Real to Reel is located at 130 W. Springbrook Drive. For more information, contact Lange at or (423) 439-7572.
