RITPJ Short Films
Screenings at the Rochester Fringe Festival

Since 2018, the photojournalism faculty has curated a series of student films to present in a program at The Little Theatre during Rochester's Fringe Festival. The event, which is free and open to the public, highlights much of the video storytelling created by senior capstone students. However, occasionally work from the Non-Fiction Storytelling and Advance Multimedia Classes are featured.
