The cinema arts department will be highlighting students’ short films with two public screenings Nov. 6 at Row House Cinema in Lawrenceville.

The films are a culmination of four years of intense training, according to Jeremy Braverman, chair and associate professor of cinema.

“Our program offers students a collaborative experience and the opportunity to specialize in a single discipline, such as directing, cinematography or screenwriting, at the undergraduate level,” Braverman said. “Their film sets look like professional shoots, and these films have the look of professional work.”

Last May, a panel of professional filmmakers selected five student-created film shorts that were given a premiere screening for the 2015 cinema showcase at the Cecil B. Demille Theatre in Los Angeles. 

Eric Pertilla, a talent manager for Mosaic Media Group in Los Angeles, called the student-created films “the best I’ve seen this year from any film school in the country.”

The screenings will be at 7 and 8:15 p.m. Tickets are $5.
