Trine’s Overlooked Film Festival continues with ‘American Animals’

Trine University’s Overlooked Film Festival will continue this Friday, Nov. 2, with “American Animals.”

The Overlooked Film Festival gives members of Trine’s local community the opportunity to watch free films that were not released locally or that were generally “overlooked” at the time of their release. All films will be shown at 7 p.m. at the Fabiani Theater in the Rick L. and Vicki L. James University Center.

The film festival is one of Trine’s major community outreaches, bringing everyone together once a week to enjoy a film. The event’s audience is a mix of students, community members, and Trine faculty and staff.

Concessions will be sold outside the theater by sisters of Phi Sigma sorority prior to the showing. Fabiani has a maximum capacity of 320 guests, so it’s recommended that attendees with specific seating preferences arrive early.

“American Animals,” rated R, is a film that follows the true story of four college students in Kentucky on their misguided quest for personal glory as they plot to steal rare books from their university. The film also includes interviews with and cameos of the foursome who actually attempted the bizarre heist.
