Hi Neighbor by Associate Professor Claire Andrade-Watkins, Footprints in the Snow by Assistant Professor Paul Turano, and Undergrowth by Associate Professor Robert Todd are among the films that will be screened during the festival. In addition to Emerson’s faculty members, three Boston-area filmmakers, including notable animation artist Karen Aqua, will also be featured.
The film and video selections for the finale program were selected from the festival’s tour collection of 70 works. The evening’s program will be introduced by the festival’s director and founder, John Columbus.
