'Living Skies Student Film Festival set to celebrate 30 years with 2018 edition'
Students at the University of Regina’s Department of Film have been organizing a film festival since 1988, and the coordinators of this year’s Living Skies Student Film Festival are excited to be celebrating a very special occasion – 30 years of showcasing excellence in student filmmaking from Saskatchewan, Canada, and around the world.
The 2018 festival will be taking place from Thursday, March 8th through Saturday, March 10th on the University of Regina Campus, and received over 1700 student films from 99 different counties during its ‘call for submissions’ this past December. Besides programmed screenings of the world’s best student work, the festival lineup includes a talk and workshop with acclaimed documentarian Ian Toews, a special effects workshop with famous monster-maker and Wolfcop co-creator Emerson Ziffle, and an Awards Gala Social to top it all off.
The festival will feature a wide variety of exciting student films, as chosen by this year’s panel of judges: Karen Henders – documentary filmmaker, film educator, and one of the original organizers of the festival; Trudy Stewart – Cree filmmaker and Artistic Director for the Mispon: Indigenous Film festival; Jason Britski – Independent experimental filmmaker; and Regina filmmaker and radio host Adrienne Adams.
All screenings and workshops are free to attend and open to all, and tickets for the Awards Gala Social, which is also open to the public, will be $10 and available for purchase at the door and throughout the festival.
