Johns Hopkins Film Fest Returns
to Shriver Hall

"The Turkey Alibi," a romantic comedy for the "suicidally challenged" directed by recent Johns Hopkins graduate Ruthie Aslan, will be one of the many screen treats served up for the eighth annual Johns Hopkins Film Festival, which runs from Thursday, April 27, to Sunday, April 30.

Screenings are held in venues on the Homewood campus, including Shriver Hall, home of the largest screen in Maryland. "The Turkey Alibi" will be shown Saturday, April 29, at 8 p.m. in Shaffer Hall room 3.

At 8 p.m. on Thursday in Shriver Hall, Roman Polanski's 1966 film "Cul-de-Sac," an absurdist black comedy, will kick off the student-run festival, the original and ongoing mission of which is to provide a forum for feature-length and short films that the public wouldn't otherwise likely see. This year's event includes a diverse collection of old, new and rarely seen documentaries, features and short films. Alumnus Wes Craven will be on hand, too, attending a screening of his 1977 film "The Hills Have Eyes" at 8 p.m. on Sunday in Shriver Hall.

For information and a complete listing of screenings, go to http://www.hopkinsfilmfest.com or e-mail questions@hopkinsfilmfest.com.
