3 Chapman University Films Now Up in PBS Online Film Festival

Today through March 22, the PBS Online Film Festival presents the works of directors plucked from the Los Angeles 48-hour film project, the California Student Media Festival, the LA Film Festival's Future Filmmakers Showcase, and Chapman University's own Dodge College of Film and Media Arts. Those who selected films for the final lineup were not told from where the submissions came, and in the end, three from the Orange campus were selected, according to a PBS spokesman.

The Chapman films in the second annual PBS Online Film Festival are:
