  Join us for a celebration of student filmmakers at our 9th annual USM Student Picture Show! The screening of original films will take place on Thursday, May 9th at 7:15 pm in the Talbot Auditorium, USM Portland campus.
 This selection of shorts features some of Portland's best acting talent and showcases the skills students have spent a semester honing in Advanced Production, a course team-taught by Kate Kaminski and Nat Ives since 2003.

Also screening will be a new comedy directed by Jedidiah Allen that he produced as an Independent Study.

We've got it all in one show: drama, comedy, thriller, and experimental films! Come out on May 9th and support USM student filmmakers -- you'll be glad you did.
Free and open to the public!
