Students' film festival

THERE will be no shortage of drama and suspense when film students at the University of Southern Queensland Springfield showcase their work to the public next week.

The annual Films of USQ Festival, which kicked off last year, screens a series of documentaries and short films from the second year and graduating class of the Bachelor of Applied Media program.

Faculty of Arts associate director Dr Daryl Sparkes said the quality of the productions was outstanding.

"The students have taken all they have learned throughout the program and combined it with their own natural creativity to produce some innovative and professional films," Dr Sparkes said.

"We keep the festival fairly low key at this stage, but even in its first year we still managed to attract more than 130 people on the night, so this year will no doubt be even bigger."

The film festival will be held at Springfield's Central Tavern on Monday from 6.30pm.
