Snark Hosts Summertime Film Festival

     Chris Aldrich is a movie machine.

     He directs the Reel World film series, a long-standing
weekly feature at Homewood during the academic year. Along with
fellow film junkie Matthew Gross, he is chairing the 1995 Milton
S. Eisenhower Symposium celebrating the first 100 years of motion
pictures, which is always an incredibly labor-intensive
student-run project. 

     And to fill up those lazy summer days, he has created the
Snark Summer Film Festival--106 feature films in 45 consecutive
days--from June 16 through July 30.

     All screenings are free.

     The nightly dose of double (and sometime triple) features
will be held at Shriver Hall, at Homewood, with the first film
beginning promptly at 8 p.m. Generally a few short films will
start the evening, and there will be a five-minute intermission
between feature films.

     The following is the tentative schedule for the Snark Summer
Film Festival. For a complete listing and to confirm dates, films
