Edinboro Student Film to Play Pittsburgh Indy Film Fest

Seventeen, produced in December 2018 by students in Edinboro’s Film & Video program, has been selected for screening at this year’s Pittsburgh
Independent Film Festival. Made by upperclassmen in Professor Brian Fuller’s Film & Video Production IV course, Seventeen is one of sixty-seven films from
around the world scheduled for screening June 21-23. The newly remodeled Parkway Theater will host the three-day event at 644 Broadway.

Seventeen is an atmospheric tale that follows Vic (James Howells) and Adam (David LeFaye) to the end of their unconventional relationship. The movie was
directed by Eliza Kuhn and produced by Megan Ciafre. Tina Sontheimer was director of photography. Frank Albrecht was production designer; Salvatore
Frederick designed the sound, and Taylor Prach edited.

The Edinboro University of Pennsylvania Art Department has offered instruction in film and video production since 1969. Graduates of the program routinely become contributors to high-profile studios, films, and television shows.
