Johns Hopkins Film Festival
Returns to Shriver Hall

** Corrected Copy: New Times for Sunday Screenings **

The Johns Hopkins Film Festival returns for the sixth time Thursday, April 8, through Sunday, April 11, with an extensive lineup viewed in Shriver Hall on the university's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.

Seeking to promote the work of budding independent and student film makers, the student-run Johns Hopkins Film Society will showcase the year's prominent documentaries, features and short films, as well as the work of lesser- known local, national and international artists. Displayed formats are 35 mm, 16 mm, Super 8, DVD and VHS. The JHFS also publishes the campus film journal Frame of Reference.

The program includes films on the near-assassination of Andy Warhol, racial diversity in the punk rock scene, and the 2000 presidential election debacle in Florida. Segments range from approximately one hour to just under two hours long.

All of the films will be shown in Shriver Hall, the largest screening facility in Maryland. The cost to the public is $3 per show, $5 per day, or $15 for an all- encompassing festival pass. The shows are free to Johns Hopkins faculty, staff and students with ID. For information, visit www.jhu.edu/~jhufilm/fest/index.html or call 410-235-8719.
