Screening of Theater Production Afeard and Ignite Film Festival

Saturday, April 18, 2020 - 7:30pm
Arrupe Hall Auditorium

Join Rockhurst theater students for the first-ever film theater production and a screening of student-produced short films. Inspired by Saint Ignatius Loyola and the quote, “Go forth and set the world on fire,” this presentation produced by Ignite KC Films will feature a red-carpet reception with photo opportunities and the premiere of Afeard, a film based on a screenplay written and directed by Matthew Schmidli and performed and filmed by Rockhurst students. Afeard features vignettes related to the theme of fear. This work contains content that may not be suitable for children under the age of 13. Awards for best film, audience choice, and runner-up for best film will be given to the winning film teams following the feature presentation on April 18. The winner of best film award will be re-screened that evening. Register here.
