RISD Senior Movie Fest

RISD Auditorium Tonight kicks off the RISD Senior Show, the first of four viewing nights. Michael Janusonis gives a rundown of some of the films he was able to preview. (ProJo)

Thirty-one about-to-graduate seniors in the film/animation/video department at the Rhode Island School of Design are having back-to-back world premieres over the next four days of the projects they’ve been working on for the past eight months.

This year’s crop is an eclectic mix. There are films that will awe you, such as the special effects-filled “End of the Day.” Films that will tug at your heart, such as the animated “Eclipse.” And films that will leave you scratching your head … as in “What the heck was that all about?” But even if you don’t quite connect with each and every one of the films, you will certainly see that a lot of care had been taken and that there’s a lot of talent out there, although some of it is still waiting to blossom.

$5 ($3 student id), 7pm, Wednesday May 19 thru Saturday May 22, RISD Auditorium, 17 Canal Street
