Draw back the curtain and dim the house lights. Drake University will host the first Foray Film Festival from 7 to 8:30 p.m., Friday, April 14, in Bulldog Theater, Olmsted Center, 2875 University Ave. The event is free and open to the public.


The student-organized festival will feature student-produced films ranging in length from 1 minute to 10 minutes. Six Drake faculty members will judge the competition and prizes will be awarded. Refreshments will be served after the showing at about 8:30 p.m.


Drake Filmmakers, founded in 2004 by a group of Drake students with a common interest in watching and making movies, organized the Foray Film Festival.


Over the last two months, Des Moines-area college students have been working on their films to enter into Foray. The film selection will run the complete range of theatrical offerings including drama, comedy, action and romance.


For more information about the festival, contact Andrew Rogers, president of Drake Filmmakers, at (515) 274-2628 or team@drakefilmmakers.com. For more information on the Drake Filmmakers, visit http://www.drakefilmmakers.com/.
