Non-fiction film fest
features student work


Elon's annual non-fiction film festival took place from 5 to 6 p.m. May 18 in the McEwen Theater. The event included showings of the DVD versions of the best of Elon student documentary, video ethnography and non-fiction film. The rules of the festival required that submissions be no more than 30 minutes in length. Only work from current students could be submitted. The faculty mentor for the event is Brooke Barnett.

Among the entries were a documentary about media bias by Matt Belanger, Scott McPhate and Amy Jo Jenkins and a documentary film about Elon student Chris Hendricks by Laura Hersh, Lauren Durr and Lindsay Balfour. Hendricks has overcome many medical obstacles and is an inspiration to a number of students.

Barnett also served as a judge for the North Carolina Visions film program in June.
