Lipscomb hosts 2017 Five-Minute Film Festival

Lipscomb hosts 2017 Five-Minute Film Festival

The annual Five-Minute Film Festival was held Friday night in Shamblin Theatre and was hosted by Lipscomb’s own film and theater departments. The festival was an attempted black-tie event, complete with a red carpet. Many wore suits or dresses and high-heels, but some didn’t get the memo. “I was supposed to come and give out awards, but I didn’t have a suit with me,” said sophomore film major Clay Mortenson, donning his pink sweatshirt. “I was told not to worry about presenting.” The event began with an introduction; then the first act of short films followed. After the intermission, the second act began and awards were given. Professor of film and creative media Steve Taylor hosted the event and introduced other award-presenters while former student David Moomey used various percussion equipment on stage to create suspense with drumrolls. “We have an esteemed panel of judges,” Taylor said, “and they are all film professionals.” The judges decided on the winners of most awards, but they left a handful of awards to the discretion of the audience. One of the highest award-winning short films was “A Crack in the Robin’s Egg,” directed by junior Kwame Marah. “It started out as a short story,” Marah said. “It’s something that has been sitting on my mind for a long time.” Marah says he felt the calling to make it a film. “It’s more of a passion project than anything else,” he said. The film, Marah says, is about our priorities, and “being here now.” The film tied for first with “Revival,” as the 2017 Best Narrative, and both will be screened at the 2017 Nashville Film Festival....

Social clubs Theta Psi and Delta Omega hosted Full Moon Festival, an annual benefit concert, in Allen Arena on Saturday. This year’s concert combated drug and alcohol abuse by promoting “pure, clean fun.” The lineup featured fellow students, some who perform professionally. Senior Joel Clinger offered to shave his head as an incentive for students to raise money by purchasing tickets or refreshments. True to his word, Clinger buzzed his locks on stage after the concert exceeded the goal and raised over $5,000 for Ed Pack Global.   Photos by Anna Rogers   « ‹ 1 of 2 ›...
