2012 Notre Dame Student Film Festival

Location: DeBartolo Performing Arts Center

The Notre Dame Student Film Festival—a tradition now in its 23rd year—screens films made by undergraduate students during the past year as class projects. These students study the art of filmmaking in advanced, intermediate, and introductory film and television production courses taught in the Department of Film, Television, and Theatre. All films are shot on location and often feature the acting talents of Notre Dame students and faculty. This year's festival features 16 films: * _King of the Park_ (Marty Flavin, Megan Kozak): Come one, come all to Ye Battle of the Dueling Park Performers. * _Worn Souls_ (Siobhan Martinez, Jon Simpkins): A touching and bittersweet tale of a couple’s journey through love and loss * _The Talker_ (Will Thwaites, Ryan Taylor, Jimmy Long): On the court and in the classroom, women’s basketball player Brittany Mallory gets her message across. * _Cassette_ (Kurt Zhuang, Rob Schaus): Isolated in a post apocalyptic world, a lone soldier has one thing to hold onto. * _Roundabout_ (Will Thwaites, Alissa Ott): The pressures of a child custody hearing take their toll on a mother trying to keep it together. * _Valentrippin_ (Sara McGuirk): A modern-day Chaplin tries some campus romance the old-school way. * _Project Hopeful_ (Kelsie Kiley, Grace Johnson): A woman in Illinois with seven biological children has chosen to double the size of her family in a most inspiring way by adopting orphans with HIV/AIDS—and she helps others do so, as well. * _Flip_ (Chris Silvestri, Kathleen Bracke): A solitary, rhythmic day turns on a flip as business finds art for a fleeting moment. * _Virus_ (Kelsie Kiley, Sean O’Rourke): Orwell and Metropolis meet Notre Dame. * _Krumnow vs. Krumnow_ (Will Thwaites, Deanna Abrash): The mayor of a tiny town in Ohio seeks re-election, only to be opposed by his laid back brother. * _Look Away_ (Luis Ibarra, Brendan Fitzpatrick): Mind games haunt a student searching for the lady in red. * _Miller's Vets_ (Ryan Taylor, Chris Parr, Jimmy Long): At South Bend’s Center for the Homeless, a group of local military veterans with a common dilemma find strength in each other and the community. * _Torn_ (Blake Avery ): Student. Woman. Study. Party. * _Soles_ (Collin Erker, Nicole Timmerman): A love story told from the bottom up * _Some Serious Work_ (Chris Parr, Deanna Abrash): Kat Rodriguez is one of the many Notre Dame women who’ve made boxing their sport of choice. * _Triple Threat_ (Grace Carini, Caroline Maroney): A superbad roomie ignites a superbad dorm room argument.
