CUFP will hold its annual showcase of films tomorrow
As most film majors will be quick to tell you—and any friend they’ve unwittingly roped in, even quicker—making a movie is hard: taxing, time-consuming, mechanically complex, and often logistically impossible. Still, after the blood, sweat, and tears of even the most draining shooting weekend—then the all-night edit sessions and delightful hair-tearing dilemmas—once the files are exported, the final cut locked, you’re left with some pretty incredible student product, directed, crewed, even acted by your classmates. Columbia Undergraduate Film Productions, an organization that facilitates a majority of campus filmmaking, will host its annual spring festival at 7 p.m. tomorrow in Dodge Hall 511, providing a chance to celebrate your peers’ entertaining accomplishments with a lineup of 12 student-made shorts. Short synopses of the films after the jump.
