A CCAD student film will once again be featured in Film Columbus‘ Camelot Cellars Film Series.

Film Columbus will hold its second monthly film night on April 24, including a screening of It Takes Courage, Columbus, part of the It Gets Better project, a worldwide movement of user-created videos in support of LGBT youth.

The film was a collaboration between CCAD and the Columbus Division of Police led by Vicki Golden, Advertising & Graphic Design assistant professor. Phil Garrett, Animation and Cinematic Arts assistant professor, directed, and Cinematic Arts senior Sakhile Vanqa assisted in shooting and editing.

The Camelot Cellars series features the work of local filmmakers and serves as a fundraiser for Film Columbus, a nonprofit dedicated to promoting local film and providing resources to local and visiting productions.

Film Columbus’ next film night is April 24 at Camelot Cellars, 958 N. High St., Columbus, OH, 43201.

Hochstetler is from Westerville, OH (Westerville North High School); Moore is from Wooster, OH (Waynedale High School); Smith is from Blacklick, OH (Licking Heights High School); Preston is from Columbus, OH; Taylor is from Columbus, OH; and Thatcher is from Signal, TN (Chattanooga Christian School).
