Since 2009, students from Brooklyn, NY’s Pratt Institute have organized the annual Wallabout Film Festival, an event that showcases student short films from the Pratt community, other New York City area schools, and institutions from around the world. This year’s event, the 9th Annual Wallabout Film Festival, will take place the evening of Thursday, April 20 at the Wythe Hotel in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Wallabout has its origins in Pratt’s Department of Social Science and Cultural Studies. Each spring a dozen students, representing a range of majors, enroll in the department’s Film Festivals: Theory & Practice course to learn about the history, role, and impact of film festivals within the larger film industry and film culture as a whole. Lectures from instructor and film festival veteran Basil Tsiokos (Sundance, DOC NYC, Nantucket), class discussions, and film industry/filmmaker guests provide a framework and context for students to organize Wallabout as the class’ final project for the semester.See more cheap New York City events & things to do on Nifty NYC.
