The University of Central Arkansas will host its first "Best of" Screening, featuring films produced by UCA students in the last few years, at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Donald W. Reynolds Performance Hall. The event is free and open to the public.

Joe Dull, associate professor of digital filmmaking, said UCA students who have directed these films have worked hard and are sure to win fans.

"It’s been amazing to watch the growth of the students in the years that I’ve been here," Dull said in a news release. "They’ve really turned into some great filmmakers."

The screening will feature films from a variety of genres such as comedies, thrillers and westerns that range from two-minute to 20-minute productions.

Films to be screened include: "Man in the Moon," by Kim Risi; "Sacred Ground," by Ben Aaron; "Cotton County Boys," by Collin Buchanan; "Ouachita Rising," by Brent Williamson; "Sepepperated," by Hunter Sample; "The Drip," by Eric White; "Greed," by Trenton Mynatt; "The Register," by Kat DelaCruz; and "Immoveable Quarter," by Brandon Bogard.
