Monday, May 9 - Friday, May 13Augusta Savage Gallery
Five days of films representing the best narrative, documentary, experimental and animated films produced by Maine college filmmakers. Across the state of Maine, there are so many good films that often go unnoticed. As a breeding ground for young talent, Film Chowdah offers college and university students an outlet for showing their work and networking in a festival setting. The selection of work featured at Augusta Savage Gallery will be the best of this year’s event, curated by Corey Norman. Corey Norman is a professor in the Communications and New Media department at Southern Maine Community College (SMCC), where he specializes in teaching video production. Prior to his teaching career, he served as the postproduction manager and online editor at The Lone Wolf Documentary Group, where he worked on nationally broadcast programming for clients such as: History, Discovery, National Geographic and Nova.
