WVU Short Film Festival Donates To Scholarship Fund

Posted: Updated:
MORGANTOWN -

West Virginia University held its fourth annual Short Film Festival over the weekend.

The event included round table discussions, film showings, and an art auction.

Proceeds from each piece of art auctioned off went toward the Global Positioning Studies Scholarship at WVU.

Some filmmakers also donated to the scholarship.

"We gave him 50 DVD's for 'Experiment 6' to sell and put the money towards the scholarship fund, so he was happy about that," said Michael Leis, a Filmmaker attending the festival. "We also gave him ten posters [to sell] of the movie 'Experiment 6."

The scholarship will directly support students in the School of Art and Design at WVU.
