Festival of short films scheduled this week

PORT ANGELES — Like its predecessor, the One-Minute Film Festival in March, Good Things Come in Small Packages, Part 2, will present Peninsula College student films.

The original work of drama students as writers, actors, directors and videographers will be presented at noon today on YouTube. The YouTube link will be available on Eventbrite at least one day prior to show time at https://bit.ly/3vgX9Gx. The event is free and open to the public.

The pandemic posed many challenges for students of all disciplines, but live theatre had a unique set of tribulations, so Peninsula College students adapted by turning scene work into film work.

Even as pandemic restrictions wane, the shift in thinking from stage to screen continues. The festival will illustrate how the next generation of budding thespian-filmmakers are ushering in their own mini-renaissance of the performing arts in the digital world.

Students from Lara Starcevich’s Acting One class at Peninsula College include Abigail Austin, Malleck Braun, Nie Enuol, Cassius Jennings, Jared Larson, Jahnavi Newsom, Liam Stengel and Christain Wing-Kovarik. Free tickets are available on Eventbrite.

This show was made possible by the support of Luke Robins, Peninsula College president; the Peninsula College Foundation; and Rick Ross and the Associated Student Council (ASC) along with public support and the encouragement of Peninsula College students.
