Peninsula College’s Fourth Annual Moving Pictures Film Festival will be held Wednesday, June 7, 2016 at 7:00 pm in the Maier Performance Hall at the College.
Several of the festival films showcase nonprofits, community, and educational adventures like the Northwest Veterans Resource Center, Serenity House, Habitat for Humanity, and Volunteers of Olympic Medical Center to Peninsula College’s Green Building Department, Digital Storytelling Certificate ‘The Hero’s Journey’ Project, a Multimedia Shared Experience field trip, and a humorous expedition of campus. Filled with thoughtfulness, humor, and heart, this year's films were created by Maria Terry Binando, Elaine Cochran, Jack Cote, Ellie Dewhurst, Christopher Enges, Donna Geer, Rebecca Groves, Cindy Guoan, Darryl Hayes, Patrick McCready, Kathleen Perry, Sierra Pick, Anthony Richards, Lois Spicer, and Seth Wonderly.
Many filmmakers have earned or are earning their Short-Term Certificate in Digital Video at Peninsula College. Multimedia Communications Program Coordinator and Instructor Renne Emiko Brock will host a Q & A with the filmmakers to discuss the Digital Video courses offered at PC, and filmmakers successes after school.
Exploring documentary styles, filmmaking, directing, and production management, the Digital Video Certificate provides students with beginning and advanced digital video skills while learning to plan, film, edit, stream, and market short digital videos on the internet. They produce documentary shorts, original stories, and edutainment videos that demonstrate the persuasive power of visual storytelling and present their work as part of the Peninsula College Spring Arts Festival and Magic of Cinema.
2017 Digital Video Short Term Certificate graduates are Rachel Brown, Josue Cadenas, Joseph Crollard, Makayla DeScala, Christopher Enges, C. Woody French, Rebecca Groves, Sierra Horsley, Abbygail Mae Latson, Yirong Liu, Kathleen Perry, Anthony Richards, Abigail Siefer, Brandon Taft, David Walter, Luthfan Wicaksono, Tashina Woodyard, and Noah Wyllie.
The same evening, June 7, Peninsula College will host a Student Pop-Up Art Gallery in the PUB. (http://bit.ly/2rc0vfa) Brock encourages visitors to migrate to Maier hall afterward where they can mix and mingle with film makers before the showing.
