“Best of Chapman University Student Films” at the Frida Cinema for First Time FRI.-SAT.

For the first (hopefully not last) time, OC Cinematheque at the Frida Cinema in downtown Santa Ana presents the “'Best of Chapman University Student Films” tonight and Saturday.


The 22 films in all genres that range from 40-minute live-action movies to three-minute animations will be presented in three separate blocks of time. Block one runs from 7 to 11 tonight, block two is from 1:30 to 5:30 p.m. Saturday, and block three is 7 to 11 that night.

The flicks were created through Chapman University's Dodge College of Film & Media Arts between 2008 and 2014, and each film block will be followed by audience Q&As featuring filmmakers and Dodge College faculty.

Tickets are $7 per block or $15 for all three, with Frida Cinema members getting a $2 discount per block or a $5 price cut for the trio. Buy them at www.thefridacinema.org or www.fandango.com.

The Frida Cinema is at 305 E. Fourth St., Santa Ana.
