UAF Film Club Archives

Fade In.

Fairbanks. The screen is still black because the sun is lazy in this part of the world. It’s negative forty and the students have built a climbing wall by sticking soft serve ice cream cones to the side of a dorm… but we don’t call them dorms, they’re only referred to as residence halls because someone thought that might help with the rampant depression and alcoholism. It didn’t.

You get the idea, UAF was a weird place to go to school. Dark, cold and full of moose.

There was also a film festival.

This compilation of the first four years worth of films was put together by Paul Gentemann in 2004. You might recognize some of these fresh young faces and pay particularly close attention at the 2:50 mark.

John Bolds is posting a bunch of these old films to YouTube and he’ll probably get shut down for the copyright violations soon so catch them while you can!

    Wow. It’s been a really long time since I last saw that video. So many hours of work went in to editing that, that I absolutely hated it when I was done. Good to see that other people enjoyed it, though.
