Last year we started our annual film festival to showcase multimedia work and films by VCU students that promote and prompt discussion on progressive ideas.
Come join us at the Depot (814 W. Broad St.) from 7-9pm on Saturday, April 29 for this free event to view some amazing short films made by VCU students about topical, social issues. There will be films, food, and good conversation! Use the link above to go the Facebook event page for more information.
We filmed in the Compass to find out what people in the VCU community were angry about with our Soapbox video project. The purpose of the project is to dive into the minds of the people we see everyday and figure out what they think about current events and our society. The video will premiere at our 2nd Annual Amendment Film Festival. Click the title link to find out more and view our previous Soapbox Sessions.
