Upcoming events Week of April 4

Congratulations to Villanova making it to the final!!!!

Congratulations to the the Media Film Festival for such a successful run, and the winners are............. check it out at the Media Arts Council Facebook page.  Spoiler alert all the winners were shown on Saturday night it seems and I was only there on Friday. On Friday night, I was laughing out loud to Animation Hotline and squirming in my seat during Ferdinand Knapp, a psychological thriller is what I would call it. I think in the credits they referred to it as a mental test. Each of the films I view, there were 15 on Friday, definitely gave you a different topic to think about.
