Students will interact with professionals in promotions, distribution and independent filmmaking while immersing themselves in the aesthetics and culture of film. Students will spend one week at Elon, put on a small film screening, and then travel to Utah to attend a week of the Sundance Film Festival. They will research topics prior to attending the festival and complete journals and related assignments upon returning to campus.
