Radio Gallery 02-24-10: Yeti Film Festival

This week, Radio Gallery features UMD's Out Cold week by interviewing two Yeti Film Festival entries, Spencer Johnson and Andy Lindberg. There were two nights of the festival in which students vote for finalists, February 22nd and 23rd, and the finalists' films were shown on February 25th.


Radio Gallery 02-24-10: Yeti Film Festival

Hosted by Maija Morton

The Yeti Film Festival started three years ago as part of UMD's Out Cold week. The Kirby Program Board thought the Yeti Film Festival would be a good way to reach the artistic students of UMD, and a way to keep students entertained and involved during the winter. Students entered films in the categories of Theatrical, 30-Second Short, Documentary/Mockumentary, Library, and Musical. During the voting days, upwards of thirty films were shown, and the students who attended rated each film. Fewer films made it to the Thursday showing, and out of those finalists, students voted for the top films of each category, as well as the top overall film. Andy Lindberg and Spencer Johnson met with Radio Gallery to discuss their films. Johnson won first place at the festival, along with another student, for the short film, "Library Security." Lindberg and Johnson joined Radio Gallery to discuss the challenges and ideas behind their film making.
