Spring Film48 Happening in New Paltz; Meeting Thurs., March 9 in CSB54

SUNY New Paltz’s Media Society, a Broadcast Education Association Student Club, is putting on its own local Film48 competition! It will take place the weekend of March 24th to March 26th. Teams of students will be given 48 hours to create a short film from start to finish, with a handful of criteria they must use in their productions as well.

A general interest meeting will be taking place this Thursday, March 9th, in CSB 54, from 5:00-6:15. Students will be informed of competition rules and can also use the event to put their own teams together. We will hold a viewing party in the weeks following the competition, where students will be able to vote for their favorite films. Hope to see you there!
