There will be a meet and greet at 6 p.m., and the screening will start at 7 p.m. The meet and greet will consist of filmmakers, cast, crew and ALT-TV alumni. The screening is free and open to the public. These students will display work from the semester ranging from comedic, drama, political pieces and more, according to the press release. The content is considered by club members to be “TV-14” and features no profanity.

“ALT-TV loves videos and movies and self-expression, and creating videos for our end-of-the-semester screening is the outlet where we get to bring these passions together and share it with our peers,” said Derek Wunder, president of ALT-TV, in a press release.

ALT-TV is a student-run promotional media production firm at Eastern Illinois University that started in 2012. At meetings, members write or produce short videos at 8 p.m. on Mondays in Coleman Hall.
