University of Dayton to host LGBT Film Festival

ArtStreet, UD’s arts complex, and Spectrum, the University of Dayton’s gay-straight alliance, will host its first LGBT Short Film Festival on Friday, February 24, 2012, at 9 p.m.

The films include “Door Prize,” “Nothing Happened,” “I Don’t Want to Go Back Alone” and “The Rubi Girls.”  From FlyerNews.com :

According to ArtStreet director Susan Byrnes, the idea for the film festival came about when local filmmaker and “The Rubi Girls” director Jonathan McNeal gave ArtStreet the opportunity to show the film. From there, other films were suggested, Spectrum became a partner and the event became a short film festival, she said.

Byrnes said she is excited to be able to work with Spectrum.

“I’m interested in supporting a variety of viewpoints on campus,” she said. “And the opportunity to partner with Spectrum seemed to be good for them as an organization and for students to understand a little more about Spectrum and what they’re about.”

Spectrum’s president Patrick Boston, a senior international studies and communication major, said he is eager to show students what its community is all about.

“[The film festival] will show a different side of the LGBT community that they [students] probably haven’t been exposed to,” Boston said. “It will be a celebration and demonstration for this community.”
