Asbury University | Highbridge Film Festival returns, April 24
Prof. Greg Bandy co-founded the event with Prof. Jeff Day and Dr. Jim Owens in 2004. “Making good movies is a lot like music or sports. You have to practice,” Bandy said. “Our goal was to provide a unique educational experience to students interested in visual storytelling. We also want students to creatively communicate the truth about what it means to be a human being through short films.”
To that end, the Highbridge Film Festival is committed to exploring the human condition through the power of visual storytelling. Asbury University student and high school filmmakers prepare films yearlong for the competitive selection process, in which only about a dozen are chosen for the festival premiere. The cinematic celebration draws approximately 1,400 guests each year and has become the largest annual campus event.
