Hard to believe we’re already eight weeks into the semester. For better or worse, we’re settling into one of the most important times for students (in my opinion). The weather keeps getting colder and it won’t be too long before we start seeing the snow stick. There are still some awesome things happening on campus this week, including the 41 North Film Festival, October 23-25.
The 11th annual 41 North Film Festival, formerly known as the Northern Lights Film Festival, shows independent films that are released and in discussion at the moment. It is an event that is getting students and the local community involved in the world of these films throughout the weekend. The films are absolutely free and open to the public. In addition to the films themselves, this festival allows the audience to interact with the filmmakers, producers, and other people in the industry. “Destination Cinema at Michigan Tech” is providing a chance for students and community members take a look at this films and gain some new perspective through watching the films and discussions about them.
In addition to the critically acclaimed movies that are being shown in the Rozsa, there will also be prizes at each screening. Sponsors have donated items to be raffled off throughout the weekend. Between the afternoon and evening screenings there will be live music shows in the Rozsa lobby. These are local bands and there will be a different one for each day of the festival. Additionally, attendees will have the opportunity to order food from local places and have it delivered after the afternoon screening, during the break.
With plenty of cool things going on, it can be difficult to want to stay in and study. However students here have some of the best work ethics and can always be seen the library or in a classroom getting things done.

Have a good weekend!
