VANCOUVER, BC (April 4, 2012) - On April 27th and 28th at the Empire Granville 7 Cinemas, students from the University of British Columbia Film Production Program will present the 22nd Annual Persistence of Vision Film Festival, or POV 22.
POV is a two-night film festival produced collectively by students of the three-year Film Production Program. It is the first public premiere of their films. Students raise sponsorship interest from local businesses to provide awards in many categories. Judged by a panel of industry professionals, the winning films are announced on the second night.
“POV is our opportunity to share our work with our friends, family and the general public, but it also acts as a springboard for the recognition each of us aims to achieve as new artists,” explained Julia Patey, 3rd-year POV co-chair.
This year’s show features a range of stories about friendship, betrayal, compassion and coming of age, and promises an even mix of comedy and drama. The breadth and learning experience of the films is also felt in the wide range of shooting formats; DSLR, Super 16mm, RED Epic and Sony FS-100 were all employed by the students. All key technical, creative and marketing roles have been fulfilled by students in the program this year.
“Together we have all dedicated the better part of a year towards producing these films, and we’re proud to display the culmination of that time and effort through a proper festival,” said Tyler Funk, 4th-year chair.
