Mass Communication to honor MSU Texas Centennial with documentary films

The Department of Mass Communication and the Fain College of Fine Arts at Midwestern State University will celebrate the university’s Centennial with a festival of documentaries about the university and Wichita Falls. The showings will be from noon-4 p.m. and 5-7 p.m. Thursday, March 31, in Legacy Hall’s Multipurpose Room on the MSU Texas campus.

“Mass Communication students have been producing documentaries about life in Texoma for almost 40 years,” said Associate Professor of Mass Communication Jonathon Quam. “These films are produced as their capstone projects in the program, and many have gone on to win national awards and compete in film festivals across the country.”

The Wichita Falls series, shown between noon and 4 p.m., consists of 20 films about life in Wichita Falls with documentaries made between 1990 and 2021.

The MSU Texas Series, shown from 5-7 p.m., consists of five films about the MSU Texas community and will feature a panel of filmmakers after the screenings.

“The community is invited to view this special film series about life at our remarkable university and in our wonderful city,” Quam said.

The audience is welcome to come and go. Films will be playing all day, and each hour will consist of a film from the 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s. Refreshments will be provided.
