The Campus MovieFest, a student film competition we blogged about in September, has selected 16 short films by ASU students and will host a screening of them Monday evening at MADCAP Theaters.
If you go, you might get a good slice of the artistic diversity within the school's film program; film themes include a look at a child's imagination, a park bench, a hustler on the golf course, and a dinner date-turned spy battle.
The 16 were chosen from 32 films submitted by student teams that were loaned equipment to shoot and edit their films, courtesy of the fest. After one week, each team was required to return the equipment and a 5-minute movie.
