Third Year Film and Theatre Festival 18-22 March

The department is buzzing with activity at the moment as final edits, technical and dress rehearsals take place for our Third Year Film and Theatre Festival.

March 18-22 sees our Third year students present their film and theatre pieces they have created as part of their Independent Projects. Crewed and performed by students from across the department these are the 10 minute films and 40 minute theatre pieces that are the culmination of our students’ practical experience. The festival is programmed and run by the students themselves, who also sell the tickets available throughout the week. The week allows the university and wider community to visit the Minghella building and see what creative and exciting ideas are fermented in FTT.
