Baylor University's department of communications studies will feature student multimedia projects during the 7th annual Black Glasses Film Festival at 7 p.m. Friday, May 1, in room 101 of the Castellaw Communications Building on the Baylor campus.

The event, which is free and open to the public, will highlight student films with a variety of genres, including thrillers, comedies, dramas, film trailers and much more. All of the films are classified as short films under 30 minutes.

"It is important for people to come out and see what their peers can do," said David Roark, a senior Baylor film and digital media major. "We appreciate receiving support for student filmmakers."

Roark's short film, "Hipsters" is a comedy highlighting the idea that youth are conformed to the idea of nonconformity.
