Student Screenings

Amateur filmmakers, students and brothers Steven and Brian Amos last year organized the Door County Student Film Festival in their home town of Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, and were blown away by both the quality of submissions from around the world and the sold-out screenings.

So this year they turned their little festival into Student Films Across America — stopping in more than fifty cities across the country to screen the best of today's high school and college student films. "Student films are a lot better than what people are expecting to see," Steven Amos says.

The fest stops at the Esquire Theatre, 590 Downing Street, tonight at 7 p.m.; admission is $7.50. Among the award-winning shorts being screened are films by Denver native Lynn Hamilton and University of Colorado at Boulder student Kyle Laursen. For more information, go to
Tue., July 17, 7 p.m.
