Livingston Film Series presents MSU student films tonight

Tuesday, June 11, 2019

The Livingston Film Series will present a free screening of student and graduate films from the MSU School of Film & Photography at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, June 11 at the Shane Lalani Center for the Arts in Livingston Dulcie Theater.

This is the final screening of the Livingston Film Series 2018-19 season, and LFS news release said. This will be a special evening of films written, produced, and edited by students and graduates of the MSU School of Film’s masters, graduate and undergraduate programs.

Montana State University’s School of Film and Photography has prepared students to become professionally trained creative artists for over 50 years. Provided with a solid foundation in writing, cinematography, editing, directing, lighting and sound, MSU film students have gone on to win three Oscars, numerous Emmys, and have worked on major productions like: “Walking Dead,” “Dexter,” “Star Wars” and many others the world over, the release said.

Culled from hundreds of student projects, the productions represent some of MSU’s finest creative cinematic offerings. LFS will be hosting a burgers and brats barbecue before the film, and as a special treat will feature Erik Peterson’s “The Ride” and Grizzly Creek Film’s “Down the River Wild,” part of four films commissioned by the Smithsonian Institute.

Now wrapping up its fourth season, the Livingston Film Series presents a variety of independent features, documentaries, local films, and special screenings on the second Tuesday of every month in the Dulcie Theatre at the Shane Lalani Center for the Arts.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Concessions are available before the show. Screenings begin at 7 p.m. Admission is free, and donations will be accepted. For more information, visit www.theshanecenter.org.

The Livingston Film Series is sponsored by Marilyn Clotz and Mary Ann Bearden and Donald B. Gimbel.
