ONLINE: Anytown, USA Student Film Screenings
Anytown, USA, created and taught by Randolph Benson, is an annual filmmaking production and editing course offered by CDS's continuing education program in which students create videos about one small North Carolina town. Intermediate to advanced continuing education student filmmakers each tell a story of their choice within the town. Together the short films form a nuanced, intimate portrait of communities as they adapt in the face of change.
This year, as the world struggles with the Covid-19 global pandemic and because we were unable to travel to this year's small town, each student filmmaker has made a film within their personal quarantine to create Anytown USA: Quarantine. This year's screening will also be online for the public; ; watch on August 12 on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZ9oE0vdpbE&feature=youtu.be
