Palm Beach Atlantic University’s Cinema Arts program encourages students to write, produce, shoot, edit, direct and act in their own short films. These films capture each of the student filmmaker’s unique personalities through the storyline, direction, and cinematography.
One of Palm Beach Atlantic’s outstanding entries for this year’s competition tells the story of every commitment-phobe’s nightmare. “Alter Falter” revolves around a young man who is left at the altar by his bride-to-be for his best friend. The story follows the ex-groom as he goes through the typical post-break-up pains: running into your ex, getting back into dating, becoming a priest (… not so typical) and eventually moving on. The stellar production quality and storytelling present an insightful and humorous outlook on a typically depressing event.
