WILMORE, KY— On Saturday, April 26, the fourth annual Highbridge Film Festival will take place in Hughes Memorial Auditorium at 7:30 p.m.

Each year, the Highbridge Film Festival features Asbury College students’ films as well as high school students’ films from across the country. Winning high school entrants receive a $1,000 scholarship. Qualified films selected for festival screening are included on a special DVD that will be available the night of the festival and shown at the Ichthus Music Festival in June.

Current judges for the film festival include Bruce Broughton, Clayton Ferguson, Erik Lokkesmoe, May-Lynn Chang and Rick Eldridge.

Broughton is a well-known composer in film and television, and has received most praise for the score for Silverado, which earned him an Oscar nomination. Ferguson, formerly of Walden Media, is currently producing The Chronicles of Narnia - The Exhibit, which will tour around the globe for five years. Lokkesmoe served as the vice president for strategic relationships with Walden Media before co-founding Different Drummer Productions. Chang is the director of strategic marketing for Walden Media. Eldridge is the producer of "Running the Sahara," an upcoming documentary narrated by Matt Damon. The judges will lead special seminars during the weekend’s activities.

Tickets to the film festival are $5 and include admission to a reception with the winners, judges and student film makers in the Asbury College Student Center.

The Highbridge Film Festival is part of Asbury’s Engaging Culture Weekend, which is made possible through the Lilly Grant and a number of other generous sponsors and contributors. Professor Greg Bandy and Asbury College Communications Department students are producing the events for the weekend.
