Trine's Overlooked Film Festival begins with 'Mud'

ANGOLA, Ind. – Trine University's annual Overlooked Film Festival starts reeling in Fabiani Theatre on Thursday, Oct. 3, at 7 p.m.

The Overlooked Film Festival, a film series co-sponsored by the Office of the Vice President of Academic Affairs and the Humanities Institute, aims to highlight quality films that might not have opened locally, or underperformed at the box office. Justin Young, who teaches journalism and media studies, directs the festival by choosing and introducing the films shown each week.

"This fall's lineup has family friendly fare in 'The Way Way Back,' gripping adult dramas in 'What Maisie Knew,' and one of the most gripping, startling documentaries you've ever seen in 'Stories We Tell,'" said Justin Young, director of Overlooked Film Festival.

Films will be shown, free to the public, in Fabiani Theatre every Thursday from Oct. 3 to Nov. 7 at 7pm. The first movie in the series is "Mud" on Oct. 3. Other movies and dates are "Stories We Tell," Oct. 10; "What Maisie Knew," Oct. 17; "Much Ado About Nothing," Oct. 24, "Grabbers," Oct. 31 and "The Way Way Back," Nov. 7.
