Friday March 24 from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. at The Metropolitan Theater

Film Fest

This year’s  West Virginia Mountaineer Short Film Festival  will dive into the systemic challenges of local, national and global health.

Hosted by the  Electronic Media program in the  West Virginia University  School of Art & Design, the three-day festival showcases narrative, documentary, animation, experimental, virtual reality and student pieces on any subject and annually highlights a topical theme in contemporary culture. 

“Whether we speak of physical health and personal well-being, the unravelling of the social fabric, our contentious politics or our threatened environment, the current health of these and other systems that provide stability to our world seems to be tenuous or faltering,” said  Gerald Habarth,coordinator and associate professor of electronic media. “What remains to be seen is how and in what direction these dynamics will continue to evolve. This year’s festival includes a special screening of works that explore these and similar questions.”

In it’s seventh year, the festival is a non-profit event and admission to screenings is free. 

“Our mission is to foster creative and artistic approaches to these genres while connecting WVU, our students and the surrounding Morgantown community to the world of independent filmmaking and new media art,” Habarth said. (For this article visit:
