The Return of Film Fest
Coming soon to a university near you--midnight madness, a
Japanese gore-fest, The Art of Professional Wrestling and a whole
bunch of "crazy flicks." Looks like the Johns Hopkins Film
Society is trying to put the camp back into campus.
The student-run group will present its second
annual Johns Hopkins Film Festival this week, an event that will
showcase more than 60 feature-length and short films, which will
be shown in three venues on the Homewood campus. The festival's
first three nights also include a midnight film show, featuring
the Maryland premiere of Evil Dead Trap, a cult-classic
horror film from Japan.
Spring Fair Bets on a Winning
A chapel of love, Elvis impersonators and games of chance--the
only thing missing is Wayne Newton. This Vegas-like atmosphere
will be transplanted to Homewood as part of Hopkins' 28th annual
Spring Fair. The three-day event, whose
theme is Jackpot '99, will begin at noon on Friday, April 16.
The student-run festival is one of the largest
of its kind, typically drawing more than 150,000 visitors to
campus for fun, food and festivities. And this year, a little
George Laufenberg, co-chair of the festival,
said he is betting on this year's theme to be highly visible.
