Embracing the infamously spooky American holiday, the international community of NYFA Australia dressed up in their scary costumes and relaxed in the theatre during their lunch break, enjoying classic horror movie clips, a costume contest, and creative fun.
It was a memorable event, allowing many students and staff to explore a side of the holiday they had never before experienced. International September Filmmaking student Daniel Lama shared, “I’ve never seen a Halloween like this in my life. It was awesome.”
Students were captivated by the montage of horror movies that were playing on the big screen, which showcased some of the best scenes from horror movie classics from 1985 to the present.
Staff and students also had fun posing at the Halloween-themed photo booth in their costumes, as a part of the campus-wide costume competition. Contestants were fierce and the judges had their work cut out for them, and in the end it was announced that Jessica Martens, who dressed as the Headless Horseman, was the winner. She won tickets to “Blade Runner 2049.”
July Filmmaking student Jessica Seeley said of the event, “It was a fantastic Halloween celebration at NYFA Australia. It was great to see the students and faculty all get involved and dress up.”
