4:51 Film Festival students from across campus will be invited to participate in a juried film festival featuring original student-made film adaptations of Ray Bradbury's timeless novel, Fahrenheit 451. The length of each entry must be 4 minutes and 51 seconds or less. A red-carpet premier for the top 3 films (1st place, 2nd place, 3rd place) will be held during Family Weekend.

The exhibition will showcase students in Dr. Joan Navarre's ENGL 113 (Honors English) and students from across campus (the winners of the film festival) sharing the results of their original research. This event will also feature an interactive student exhibit based upon both the novel and the classic 1966 Francois Truffaut film adaptation.

Location: Glass Lounge, Merle Price Commons
Sponsored by: Gender and Sexuality Alliance, University Housing, College of Education, Health and Human Sciences, and Ally Initiatives.

Winner of a Sundance Grand Jury Prize, “Paris is Burning” celebrates how one group of New Yorkers, for whom racism, poverty and homophobia are all too real, create a world of sustenance and joy. The film is being shown in support of the Day of Silence/Night of Noise, a student-led national event that brings attention to anti-LGBT harassment.

6:00 - 9:00 pm: Monster Drawing Rally

Location: Ballrooms B&C, MSC
Sponsored by: AIGA

Join us on the UW-Stout Campus for the second annual Monster Drawing Rally. Watch over 30 artists as they create mixed media artwork. Throughout the two rounds, the unique pieces will be sold for $15 each. Admission is free. The Monster Drawing Rally is not about drawing monsters, although it could be. Each artist will have complete freedom to create what they like with the materials of their choice. It is a great opportunity to gather an artistic community and indulge in the entertainment. As this event has been successful in other locations, we hope to achieve more the same energy and involvement.

8:00 pm: Comedy Show
