Huntington University will host the premiere for its second feature film, Patterns, tonight, April 19 in the Merillat Centre for the Arts on the University’s home campus. Patterns was a collaborative effort from Huntington University and Forester Film LLC. HU is the first private university in Indiana to produce feature-length films, and there are only a small handful of public universities that do this kind of work.

The film was written by Huntington University alumna Rachel Cabello, directed by alumna Dawn Davis, and produced by alumni Lance Clark and Matt Webb. Professionals from around the country flew in and helped mentor the HU students who interned on the project.

“We are so excited to have our second feature film, Patterns, premiering this Friday night,” said Clark. “It’s unbelievable that a program like ours and Forester Film is able to collaborate and produce two features in as many years.”

The film follows three estranged siblings who, after their mother’s death, return to their family home for a weekend to determine what to do about their father who has dementia. Contains content that may not be suitable for young children ages 12 and below.

The film will be held at the Merillat Centre for the Arts, Zurcher Auditorium on the campus of Huntington University, 2303 College Avenue. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with the film beginning at 7 p.m.
