Our Third Annual Screening & Red Carpet Event takes place Thursday, May 9th at 7:00 PM at the Spotlight Threatre.  Trailer and details below:



We are happy to once again partner with UCONN Hartford to bring the Third Annual Commotion Pictures Screening downtown this spring! The best works in Multimedia Production will premiere at the Spotlight Theatre on Thursday, May 9th. With a red carpet, multiple dining options, and a state of the art facility screening our students' projects, this promises to be a memorable night in the young history of our Multimedia Production sequence. Both documentary and narrative shorts from our production courses will be screened, with official selections made throughout the month of April. Stay tuned here as we announce our official selections!

The night will begin with guests congregating in the exciting new Front Street district as our student filmmakers and guests walk the red carpet, followed by the screening of our official selections, and ending with the Audience Award where those in attendance vote on their personal favorites for best picture. Afterwards, Front Street will be alive and well with its numerous restaurants and evening venues as we celebrate the best in a very exciting third year for Multimedia Production in the Department of Communication. If you're a fan of movies and enjoy creative, fresh voices in filmmaking - and you like having a good time - you're not going to want to miss this. And oh yeah, did we mention admission is FREE? We'll see you there.
