Bentley Students and WBTY Radio Host Fifth Annual Foo Fest

March 2, 2003

WALTHAM, Mass. - Bentley College will host the fifth annual Foo Fest independent film festival on Saturday, March 22, 2003 from 4:00-8:00 p.m. in Koumantzelis Auditorium, Lindsay Hall. Sponsored by WBTY, Bentley College Radio, the event is free and open to the public.

Founded by a group of Bentley College and WBTY alumni in 1996, the Boston-based film company known as Random Foo Pictures has created over 70 movies (and counting) with a wide variety of original plots. This year's Foo Fest is expected to be the largest ever, and will include the premieres of "Demento 3," a supernatural comedy, and "No Water for Nietzsche," a romantic comedy. Foo Fest provides students with an alternative source of entertainment that stimulates the mind.

"Foo Fest is an event like no other," says Bentley sophomore Peter Sechoka, Foo Fest chair and music director at WBTY. "It allows students to view the movie industry through the eyes of independent film makers in a way that can only be experienced to understand the creative genius that goes into the making of these short films."

Random Foo has been received seven awards from the REwind Movie Awards in the past two years, including wins for Best Director, Best Actor and Best Actress, and two nominations for Best Short.
