Showcase features student-produced documentary films

An undocumented college student’s experience advocating for immigrant rights, an inside look at Denver’s bike-riding culture and a glimpse into the world of online dating are just a few of the themes explored in DU’s annual student film showcase.

Now in its third year, the 2011 showcase — INSHORT:DOCS — will feature six documentary films from undergraduate and graduate students from DU’s Department of Media, Film & Journalism Studies. The showcase gives students a chance to screen their works to the public.

Each year, student films alternate between documentaries and narrative films. Students nominate and vote on subjects they want to explore in the films in class, then work in small teams to direct, film, edit and produce the films.

This year’s films include: Ouray, (Un)documented, Fixed, Vending for Change, Right Click>Find Date and Pit Row: Impoundment and Disposal.

INSHORT:DOCS begins at 7 p.m. June 2 in DU’s Davis Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, visit
