The free screenings will be 7 p.m. Friday and 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, and showcase nearly 40 short films. Started in 2018, the festival accepts films from all but prioritizes films by students and other new filmmakers. Donations are welcomed.

The two-hour online concert can be viewed on various Facebook pages (Artist Relief Tree, The Streamlined Studio, Dance ED Tips). It will be hosted by Nick Raynor (Class of 2014), who has toured internationally and recently completed an Off-Broadway run of Fiddler on the Roof in Yiddish.
