Brigham Young University will showcase a collection of this year’s best student films at the Final Cut Film Festival this week.

The BYU Final Cut Film Festival, sponsored by the BYU Theatre and Media Arts department and Student Film Association, is a student-produced event that features screenings of student-made fiction, non-fiction, commercial and animation films.

The purpose of the festival is to “encourage all students to create and watch meaningful and creative media,” according to the Final Cut website.

The festival will take place Thursday through Saturday at 7 and 9 p.m. in the Pardoe Theatre at the BYU Harris Fine Arts Center, 800 E. Campus Drive, Provo. Each 75-minute session will alternate between three programs of film selections, full details of which can be found online at film.byu.edu/finalcut. Tickets, priced $4 for students and $5 for the general public, are available online at byuarts.com.
