Student Life Presents a New York Film Academy Halloween Student Life Presents a New York Film Academy Halloween

October 31, 2016

In an effort to embrace the festive Halloween spirit that enraptures the entire city of New York, the NYFA Student Life Department held a full week of events, which included student horror films, a pumpkin painting contest, and a "Spooktacular Halloween Party."

Throughout the week, students stopped in a designated "pumpkin painting room" on the 5th floor of 17 Battery Place to express their artistic painting abilities through the traditional Halloween activity of pumpkin painting. There were dozens of pumpkins of creative design, including classic jack o' lanterns, movie references, and some altogether decorative pumpkins.

On Wednesday evening, the NYFA theater at 17 Battery Place screened a selection of student and alumni horror films in a "Screen and Scream Night." Students munched on monster munch popcorn while taking in some of the horror and thrills of the evening's chilling showcase.

The four films that screened were:
"The Hierarchy" - directed by Jorge Godinez
"The Widowmaker" - directed by Elmo Kebour
"The Hunt" - directed by Fernando Acquarone
"Feast" - directed by Aizhan Teganbayeva
"Translucent" - directed by Corey Wyckoff

Halloween festivities culminated on Thursday evening at the NYFA student Halloween party, where students dressed up, mingled, crowded into the photo booth, and voted on the winning pumpkin. The winner, Tirza Guevara, was announced at the Halloween party on Thursday night. She won a $100 Visa Gift Card.
