Senior acting majors, along with a few students in the theatre design & production program and film department, attended the Chesapeake Film Festival from Friday, Sept. 30, through Sunday, Oct. 2 in Easton, Maryland. This event was the first entry into the world of film festivals for most, if not all, participants.
“Our students were outstanding at this film festival and made quite the impression on the artistic director and all of their supporters,” said Visiting Associate Professor of Acting Cedric Hill, B.A. “They were poised and knowledgeable about their craft.”
Shenandoah University was invited to return next year to screen a potential collaborative project between the film and acting departments followed by a Q&A with the students on stage during the festival.
The opportunity was supported by Associate Vice President for Student Leadership and Development Fritz Polite, Ph.D.
