The 12 entries in FilmFest 2010: “Timeless” will be shown at a free screening from 2-4 p.m. Sunday at the Paramount Theatre in downtown Abilene.
The awards gala, where categories will be presented and the Best Picture award will be announced, will take place at 8 p.m. at the Paramount Theatre.
Tom Craig, director of student productions, said attendees can expect a great show.
“People can expect to see some really great talent on screen both from the production end and the acting end of things,” Craig said. “We’ve got great writing, editing, directing and production.”
The event will also feature original music by ACU students, three of whom will perform songs from several of the films. Performers include Aaron Carlile, Swing the Lead and Alex Howard, and will take place at intervals throughout the show. Craig said the event is formatted much like the Oscars – awards, film and music.
Preston Woolfolk, senior political science major from San Antonio, and Anna Peters, master’s student from Houston, will host the evening gala. Tickets cost $5 per person and the event will last two hours.
