MSU Film Festival

The Missouri State University Film Series gets underway for the fall semester on Wednesday Sept.16 at the Moxie Cinema and in Plaster Student Union Theatre on the MSU campus. For the first time, they'll screen each film in the series both at the Moxie and at Plaster, so patrons will have two opportunities to see each film. This year's theme is "Fact and Fiction: The Truth Behind Classic Cinema." Various classic films such as "Chinatown," "Apocalypse Now" and "Citizen Kane" will be screened, followed by documentaries dealing directly with each of these films. The first film, Wednesday the 16th at 7:00pm at the Moxie Cinema downtown, and repeated Monday the 21st at 7pm in Plaster Student Union, is Roman Polanski's classic "China Town." A few weeks later they'll screen a documentary on Roman Polanski and his flight from the U.S. a few years after "Chinatown" was shot. Admission to the MSU Film Series is free at both the Moxie and Plaster Student Union. And on Saturday Sept.26th at PSU Theatre, MSU presents their annual fundraising event, The Manhattan Short Film Festival, an evening of great short films from around the world. At the end of the evening viewers will vote on the best film, and your votes will be tabulated with the votes of other viewers around the country that same evening. This is the only film night in the MSU film series with an admission price associated with it: $10 adults, $8 students. Proceeds will help endow MSU's first digital film production scholarship.
