Women student filmmakers from Rochester Institute of Technology will show their films at the inaugural 360 | 365 George Eastman House Film Festival, hosted in Rochester, that grew out of the Rochester High Falls International Film Festival. 360 | 365 has expanded the range of films, but like its predecessor, is committed to film programming that celebrates the achievements of women in all roles of filmmaking.
The students’ films will be shown at 1 p.m. May 9 at the Little Theatre, 240 East Ave., Rochester. The films are animation and live-action works that range from documentaries to fictional to experimental.
The following is the list of students and their films to be featured as part of the program called “RIT Student Shorts: Women of SOFA”:
