The Black Maria Film Festival, named after Thomas Edison's film studio, has been in existence for 36 years and is one of the most prestigious festivals for short films. It also tours the country each year, bringing the films to museums, universities, and cultural centers. The film screenings on Nov 16 are a combination of narrative, documentary, and animated short films. The screening is about an hour and a half, with a Q&A to follow. This event is free and open to the public. The event is sponsored by the cinema program in the School of Communication.
