The ACTC Student Film Festival celebrated more than 60 short films including narratives, documentaries, experimental films, and avant-garde films. All the films were created during the 2011-12 academic year.

Augsburg students submitted work from virtually every class offered in the College’s film studies program, said Wesley Ellenwood, an Augsburg communication studies instructor. Ellenwood, who serves on the ACTC Student Film Festival committee, said the festival is a chance for students to have their work formally presented in a theater of more than 200 seats.
