Auditions for Flix Fest host Wednesday

Taylor Titus

Auditions for the host of the 6th annual Black Squirrel Flix Fest are at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Olson Hall lounge.

Auditions are open to students in any major. All reading materials will be given to students at the audition; they do not need to prepare anything. Students need to be available for the event on April 20 from 7 to 9 p.m.

“We’re looking for someone who is outgoing and can carry themselves well throughout the event,” said Marianne Warzinski, academic program director for College of Communication and Information Commons. “We just want to see if they can think on their feet and be personable.”

The Black Squirrel Flix Fest is an annual film festival of films fewer than 10 minutes in length. Film submissions are open to all students as long as they have made the film themselves. Students can bring their film by April 8 to Room 201 in Franklin Hall.

CCI Commons students are planning and judging the event. Students who submit films can win prizes, such as the new Avid software and a prize from Apple.
