Movies, film brings students together

By Kimberly G. Landeros/reporter

Students with a passion for film have a place to gather weekly on TR Campus.

The TR Film Club holds meetings 1:30-2:30 p.m. every Wednesday in the theater room in the Idea Store. At its most recent meeting, Film Club members introduced ideas for next semester, which included attending film festivals, hosting movie viewings and having film discussions.

Film Club vice president Collin Temples injected the discussion with ideas about the club venturing into film production. Temples, a film major, joined Film Club in his first year on TR campus. However, he also had experience heading up a film club in high school.

“Film Club would be a great first step if you’re wanting to get started in film,” Temples said. “It’s a great place to make friends with similar interests.”

Andrea Andrade, Film Club’s treasurer, showed her interest in getting involved with other TCC clubs and organizations by creating short information films with them.

Although she does not have academic plans to pursue a film-related degree, Andrade has an affinity for film, which drew her to become involved with the club.

“Film club is where students can share their passion and enthusiasm for film and feel part of the TCC community,” Andrade said.

Fellow club member, Arturo Munoz, expressed his desire for more film-based discussions at meetings.

“Film Club intends to preserve interest in films and to keep film history alive, providing context to old films to highlight the historical significance,” Munoz said.
