Batman Film Festival scheduled for April 24


Attention Caped Crusader Fans: the Batman Film Festival will be held on April 24 in JFK Auditorium at 7 p.m.

The goal of the event is for students to use their movie-making talents to assist in raising money for the Healing Patch, a program that helps grieving children and their families cope with the loss of loved ones.

The Film Festival is sponsored by the Psi Upsilon Fraternity.

Those who attend the Film Festival will have the opportunity to vote on which movie is their favorite by making a monetary contribution to that film. All donations will then be given to the Healing Patch.

“This year’s film festival will feature a variety of superhero films created and submitted by students from all walks of campus life,” said festival organizer Marcus Mihelcic.

“Expect to see short films in a cornucopia of genres, as well as an intense action-packed Batman short film that will run 15 to 20 minutes in length.”

This year marks the 80th anniversary of Batman. The Caped Crusader made his first appearance in Detective Comics on March 30, 1939.

“In addition to the philanthropic side of this event, it is also an exciting opportunity to see the creative minds of our school collaborate and create something special,” said Mihelcic.
