Clive, Young, May The Fan Film Be With You Media- Film,
Media- Video,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
May The Fan Film Be With You presents and discusses 15 of the best Star Wars fan films. In recent years, many movie fans have been inspired to make their own Star Wars films; using video cameras and powerful home computers for editing and special effects, these weekend directors have created a genre that became known as ‘fan films.’ Many of their homespun creations rival the original movies in quality and story, making these unusual films a permanent part of the Star Wars universe.

Most of these films are quite rare and have not been seen anywhere except the internet, but this program will screen them the way they were meant to be seen, in full-quality video. Additionally, the program will discuss the history of the growing fan film movement and explore what compels these budding filmmakers to invest so much effort into their personal visions of the Star Wars mythology. All material screened will be appropriate for the whole family, but discussion will be aimed primarily at adults and young adults.
