Student filmmakers from Rochester Institute of Technology are creating films catching the attention of the movie industry from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to the Sundance Film Festival. The Rochester community has a chance to view some of these films at the School of Film and Animation’s annual Student Honors Show. The show is from 2 to 6 p.m. on Sunday, May 27, at the Little Theatre, 240 East Avenue.

First-year students through graduate students in RIT’s School of Film and Animation submit hundreds of films for consideration for the annual Honors Show. A committee comprised of faculty and staff from the school selects 25 films from more than 500 entries. The students’ films are of various genres including narrative, documentary, experimental and animation (2D, 3D and experimental).

The public is invited to attend. Admission is $5, students with ID are admitted for free.
