Cut to film fanatics

The Citrus College Filmmaker’s Association is ready to help you kick off your screenplays and hone your skills as a writer.

Have you ever wanted to make films like Quentin Tarantino or Christopher Nolan?  Do you enjoy discussing movies with eccentric and passionate individuals?  If so, the Citrus College Filmmakers’ Association is the perfect fit for you.

The goal of the CCFA is to provide an outlet for creative minds to help students make their visions come to life and to discuss films.

“The Filmmaker’s Club is a good networking tool for serious filmmakers,” said treasurer David Borunda.  “It can be a fun club where you can go and talk about movies and meet a bunch of friends.”

Borunda, who previously served as club president of the CCFA from fall 2010 to spring 2011, describes the CCFA as a good place to have fun while accomplishing the association’s goal of writing screenplays.

“We are a collective of creative people, wishing to advance their own interests and ability in creating film,” said vice president Leo Spengler.

Club Rush is scheduled for March 11 and 12 in the Campus Center Mall.  The CCFA wants their booth to spark debate, conversation, and create an atmosphere for moviegoers.

“If you have an idea for a film, we can try and help you get there,” secretary Shannon Walker said.

Several members own their own green screens, recording equipment and exotic costumes.

As well as making and producing films, the CCFA hosts movie nights for members to watch the season’s blockbusters at local theaters.  Movie nights are designed to start conversation, and to enjoy the big screen with friends.

The CCFA is hosting its annual Student Film Showcase in May.  The Showcase is designed to display the filmmaking abilities of Citrus College students.  Anyone can enter, including members of other clubs who want to advertise for the fall 2014 Club Rush.

“The film club will be making our own films, talking about our projects and helping each other out,” Spengler said.  “Anyone that would like to submit a film for the showcase, is more than welcome to show up to our meetings.”

The CCFA meets every Thursday at 2:40 p.m. in the Executive Board Room in the Campus Center.  All Citrus students are welcome to attend.

“We are an outlet for creative people, attempting to advance filmmaking together,” Spengler said.
