Students, family, friends and movie-goers have the chance to check out advance screenings of UCF student produced films at an upcoming exhibition in a newly upgraded auditorium on campus.

Each year, UCF’s School of Visual Arts & Design (SVAD) produces over 100 student films — many of which will go on to compete at festivals and showcases around the globe. On Feb. 7, students in the BFA Film Program Directing 2 class will exhibit their short films before they are sent out.

The event, located in the Visual Arts Building, will be the first to utilize newly upgraded cinema equipment made available thanks to a UCF Technology Fee award. The Film Program now has access to a Digital Cinema Initiative (DCI) compliant cinema exhibition space.

The upgraded facility will also give UCF the opportunity to begin contributing to the cinema viewing culture of Orlando, and the greater Central Florida area, by curating rare and hard to access independent and international cinema.

This free exhibition event starts at 7:00 p.m. and is located in the Visual Arts Building Auditorium, room 132.
