Brush up on your MCM vocabulary— the Ivy Film Festival is back in town. Since yesterday, the IFF has been organizing different film-related events across campus. From free screenings to panel discussions with big names in the industry (why, hello, Mr. Franco and Mr. Sorkin), there’s bound to be at least one event that catches your eye and and can provide you with a break during your frantic post-Spring Weekend reality check.
What’s cool about the festival: FREE FREE FREE events, films made by students being honored at the Festival (it IS a film competition, after all), and the opportunity to drool over James Franco as he uses seductive words like diegesis and voyeurism.
What’s not so cool: because the events are FREE FREE FREE, the keynote speeches are going to fill up quickly. Jot down the dates, get tickets if you have to, and get to Granoff early to make sure you can hear Aaron Sorkin talk about how cool it is to be Aaron Sorkin.
The Festival will be going on until Sunday, April 24th. A full list of the events for the week after the jump!
