The COVID-19 pandemic of spring 2020 was not enough to deter the will to create present within Dr. Erin Clair’s University Honors Introduction to Film class at Arkansas Tech University.
After the cancellation of the 2020 ATU Little Film Festival due to the pandemic, the class decided to press forward with a virtual film festival. Each class participant produced a documentary film and an experimental film. Entries were judged by members of the class.
The following students were recognized by their peers as producing winning films:
- Taylor Aldridge
- Avery Hannah
- Alex Larsen
- Johnan Mitchell
- Ashley Reeves
- Kayden Schein
- Taylor Seiter
- Griffin Williams
- Noah Wilson
“This virtual film festival is yet another example of how ATU students learn to adapt to changing times and face challenges head on,” said Clair, associate professor of English and director of college operations for the ATU College of Arts and Humanities.
