Temple students in the School of Theater, Film and Media Arts screened their semester-long projects at Temple’s annual Diamond Film Festival.
The program, which ran from May 1 to May 2, was the culmination of many artist’s works over the last year. Students, families, and faculty were treated to a stunning display of creativity in Temple’s Performing Arts Center.
The works ranged from contemporary to modern, with many students constructing visual art pieces, such as sculptures or projection. These were shown off in the basement of the TPAC, below where the event took place.
The main event of the two-night festival was the public screenings of several student-produced films. Students got a chance to show off their successful and creative works in front of a wide audience and receive real-time feedback from peers and viewers.
The Diamond Film Festival also gave students the opportunity to network with possible future employers. Representatives from multiple production companies and freelance producers were in attendance to scout talent for upcoming projects.
The Diamond Film Festival concluded right before the start of finals, just in time for the upcoming commencement ceremony on May 10.
