Give the CU Film Studies alumni a few years and they will come back with authentic cinema. This special preview showing will encompass three alumni filmmakers and two of their short films. The Fourth Wall by Kelsey Bollig has already done its rounds on the film festival circuit while The Chieftain of the Pudding Race by Shane Crosland and David Hungerford is just starting its journey.

This will be the first US sneak preview showing of The Chieftain of the Pudding Race and is a must-see, or else you will have to wait to plan a trip to a future film festival. Also included in this lineup is an award-winning short by Alex Marman titled Mallory Meditates, which curates beautifully into this Alumni showing mixing horror and comedy.

The showing wraps three contemporary shorts with a filmic line exploring beauty, meditation, and the interior mind.
