"Three Months," by alumni from IU School of Informatics and Computing at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, and "We'll Be All Right," by IU Bloomington undergraduates, are being shown during Indiana’s largest and longest independent film festival, which runs through Saturday and showcases more than 130 creations from filmmakers around the world.
“Three Months,” which will be screened at 6:30 p.m. Friday at AMC Traders Point Theater 7 at Castleton Square, is a 20-minute film created by Matt Spear of Martinsville and Selena Hubbard of Greenwood. Both studied media arts and science at IUPUI and graduated this year.
The movie tells the story of a man who puts off his dream. Now, after a cancer diagnosis, it may be too late. The film follows the themes of pursuing dreams and not pushing them off for another day.
“We hope our film can be an inspiration to those students to take the risks needed to reach their biggest goals, Spear said. “The cancer diagnosis is a way for the main character to realize you don’t have forever.”
“It is about life being short and you shouldn’t hold back on anything,” Hubbard said.
