Simpson University to hold EXPOSURE Film Festival

REDDING, Calif. - Simpson University is presenting its 3rd annual EXPOSURE  Film Festival on Friday, Nov. 21, at 7 p.m. EXPOSURE will feature eight short films produced by Simpson University students and will be shown in the Heritage Student Life Center on the Redding campus.

Tickets can be purchased at the door for $5 ($2 with a Simpson ID) or in advance at the Simpson University Bookstore.

The EXPOSURE Film Festival is themed around the Oscars and will kick off with a red carpet scene featuring celebrity lookalikes. All films, which are under 10 minutes in length, will be evaluated and judged by the Los Angeles Film Studies Center faculty, which is part of the Best Semester CCCU (Council for Christian Colleges and Universities) study abroad program. The winner will receive a check for $500.

The event is designed to spotlight the works of Simpson University students and to give them an opportunity to express themselves through the medium of motion picture.

"The EXPOSURE Film Festival values student voice, initiative and creativity," said Aaron Beadner, director of student programs at Simpson University. "We are really excited to open this event up to the Redding community this year."
