Blue and White Film Festival to Showcase Student Works


There’s the Oscars, the Sundance, and  the Golden Globes, but here at Penn State, we have something a little more unique that the Student Film Organization puts together every year: the Blue and White Film Festival.

The Student Film Organization is a grouping of the brightest minds in the Penn State film program. They work together to produce and publicize their creations, helping students fight to get their films known in the difficult to enter indie film genre. The organization also forms bonds that could turn into future companies in the film world, and could make the movies you will watch in the coming years.

The festival, funded partially by your student activity fee, is a great way for the SFO to showcase its best works. The organization gets together its best video submissions every year and holds its own Sundance for locals. The event will be held at the State Theatre at 7 p.m. on April 26 this year, and will present the winners for the contest submissions.

The videos can vary from drama to documentary, as submissions of all kinds were accepted. The event is free to students, or seven dollars to non student ID holders. Check out the trailer below, and click here for more ticket information.
