William Woods University is set to host the Indie Pop-Up film festival starting this week. The festival will start tonight at 6 p.m. at Dulany Library Auditorium at William Woods with the first screening in the series, “Love in the Time of Fentanyl.”

Then, on Feb. 23, enjoy a screening of “Storming Caesars Palace” and on March 30, watch “Free Choi Soo Lee” in Dulany Library Auditorium.

According to a press release, the festival is a huge opportunity for students interested in a career in film. “Getting the opportunity to host the annual Indie Pop-Up film series at William Woods is a real boon to our students and Communication program,” says Tony Weed, dean of social sciences at WWU.

Last year, the university announced the establishment of a bachelor of fine arts in digital filmmaking. The degree is designed for students interested in entertainment, advertising/commercial video, YouTube, film studies, cinematography, video editing, screenwriting / script writing, directing, producing, sound design, music videos, short films and feature films.
