Citizen Staff Report
Students graduating from The University of Arizona School of Media Arts bachelor of fine arts program will screen their senior thesis films at the annual “I Dream in Widescreen.”
Students in film and video production will present what is being slated as an unusually diverse and ambitious array of films. The students wrote, directed and crewed their own films, which often feature local talent.
The lineup includes a teen genre musical, a meditation on Jewish identity, a fantasy epic about a fiddler turned dragonslayer and a comedic series of commercial spots. A Q&A session with all of the graduating filmmakers follows the presentation.
Local newspaper columnist and KXCI Community Radio program host Ernesto Portillo Jr. will host the screening.
When: Doors open at 6 p.m. with the screenings beginning at 7:30 Friday Where: Tucson Music Hall, 260 S. Church Ave. Price: free Info: 626-1405, www.uanews.org
