Overlooked Film Festival draws battle lines this spring


Who wouldn’t love six straight weeks of the best underrated movies? Be sure to come check out to this semester’s Overlooked Film Festival in Fabiani Theatre!

Thanks to Professor Justin Young, Director of the Overlooked Film Festival, you and your friends can come see some of the best, yet overlooked movies of the season every Thursday at 7 p.m. This event starts February 22 and will continue through April 5.

“This semester’s theme is ‘Battle Lines,'” shares Professor Young. “All the films are about how we draw battle lines in our lives. Sometimes that’s on the tennis court or ice in competitive sport, but sometimes it’s in our lives with family and friends. Film is an excellent way we examine this dynamic and discuss it.”

This spring, you can look forward to seeing a variety of breathtaking movies, suited for everyone. Each film is selected carefully, usually consisting of movies that were either overlooked and/or underrated. You can expect to see a wide range of films this semester, from Battle of the Sexes to Wind River.

“The event is open to the community,” states Professor Young. “It’s a great experience for campus and community to unite in watching art.”
