The film festival, which is free and open to the public, begins at 7 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 16, at The Little Theatre (theater five). A question and answer session with student filmmakers will follow the screenings.

The videos include the best work of Fisher students studying media and communication or film and television studies during the 2018-2019 academic year. This year's entries include “Baby Doll,” in which the protagonist goes to terrifying lengths to win over the affection of the girl of his dreams, “Second Chance,” a story of new love and relentless jealousy, and a documentary,  "Endless Fall," about surfing on Lake Ontario.

The department offers three majors: media and communication, media management, and interactive media, while the English Department offers a minor in film and television studies. These courses of study allow students to study television history, film analysis, and media theory, along with introductory and advanced courses in narrative and documentary production, screenwriting, and cinematography.

Since its debut in 2012, the KeyBank Rochester Fringe Festival has become one of the most successful fringe festivals in the U.S., attracting more than 78,000 attendees in 2017. Now an 11-day event, this multi-arts festival boasts over 500 performances and events—more than a quarter of which are free—in 25+ venues in downtown Rochester, New York.
