Student Film Premieres in Toronto

Up On the Big Screen

Five CWU film students got to watch the world premiere of their seven-minute documentary on the big screen at the Canadian International Film Festival last May. Their Spirit of the West was produced over five days and was one of only 12 short films that made the final cut in the International Documentary Challenge category. More than 100 films from all over the world were entered in the contest.

Johnathan Benson, Dylan Hubber, Seth Lonborg, Emily Meyer and Kevin O’Donnell spent five days making their nonfiction film, Spirit of the West, which focuses on the work done at the Spirit Therapeutic Riding Center, a facility in Ellensburg that uses horses to aid the disabled. The film premiered at the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Film Festival in Toronto.
