Rough Cut Film Festival
Embedded in a section of the required Academic Writing class, English 130P, the Rough Cut Film Festival is a public screening of student-created short films. Students spend the semester studying current issues by reading scholarly articles, sharing websites, and writing. Various writing projects include responses to readings, annotations, synthesis essays, progress memos, and inquiry essays. While the writing is shared in ePortfolios, each team also creates a short film about their topic to help their peers understand what they have learned all semester. The films are combined into one 60-90 minute video that is screened for a public audience at the Rough Cut Film Festival.
