Leah Peterson, Chair, Department of Communication at Lycoming College and her cohorts have done it again for a third year in a row. And for us, the movie viewing public, three is a charm. This year we’ll not only see the works of Lycoming College students but also the works by Bucknell University students too!
The Billtown Film Festival organization supports Leah’s efforts in producing a new crop of filmmakers. We’re sure that the new seedlings will take root and grow into prominent cinematic artists.

WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. – Lycoming College is pleased to announce that the Digital Media Video Annual will be held at the Community Arts Center in downtown Williamsport on Tuesday, April 26, from 7:30-9 p.m. There will be a screening of short narrative and experimental films by students from Lycoming and Bucknell University along with “Stage Dive” by Crossing the Frame Productions.
The inaugural Woodruff Grand Jury Prize will be awarded at the end of the evening to the student who made the best overall film. Tom Woodruff Jr. and his wife, Tami, are both Lycoming graduates. Woodruff, a native of Montoursville, Pa., and member of the Central Pennsylvania Film Office advisory board, garnered an Academy Award for his special effects work on the Meryl Streep film, “Death Becomes Her.” He also received Academy Award nominations for “Starship Troopers” and “Alien3.” In 2010, Woodruff announced plans to direct the feature film “Sideshow” in the Williamsport area, for which he has scouted locations.
