FrightLite, an animated short film created by Arts and Technology animation students and faculty, has been selected for screening at the SMU Student Filmmakers Association Spring Film Festival. The film depicts a boy who grapples to overcome his fear of monsters.
The event will take place at the Mockingbird Station Angelika Film Center on Tuesday, May 6 from 7-9 pm. A question-and-answer session will follow the films.
Earlier in the year, the film pre-screened at the Self Medicated Film Festival (RxSM) in Austin, TX. RxSM, which takes place each year alongside South by Southwest, features boundary-expanding storytelling that falls outside of the mainstream.
FrightLite also screened in April at the USA Film Festival, where it was a finalist in the National Short Film and Video Competition. The USA Film Festival festival, now in its 36th year, encourages excellence in the film and video arts.
