Still recovering from midterms?  We are too, and nothing sounds better than a movie marathon. Well, you’re in luck…

The self-proclaimed “Words Largest Student Film Festival” is collaborating with SUPERB again this year to bring you the best short films Berkeley students have to offer. The Campus Moviefest lends students from over 90 schools computers, cameras and equipment to make their own short films. They are given one week to write, film, direct and edit their masterpieces.

Don’t miss the extravaganza TONIGHT at 7 p.m. in Wheeler Auditorium for a screening of the top 16 short films made by Cal students. It’s $3 with your Cal ID, $5 for general admission.

Prizes for Best Picture, Best Drama and Best Comedy will be awarded to contestants tonight, voted on by students! So shake off your crazy week of tests and papers, dress to the nines and get ready to vote for the best of the best.

Spring Break is unfortunately over, but SUPERB will make the transition back to the Berkeley grind hurt a little less with their showing of “Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol” on Friday, April 6 at Wheeler Auditorium. The film will show at 7 p.m. as well as at 9:30 p.m., so those who are night owls can also look forward to a night of action adrenaline.

Midterm season is a stressful time for all of us. Oh, we know. No words are needed.  If you’re looking to cheer up from the strain of cramming the content of half a textbook into your mental memory, SUPERB! will be showing the movie “Crazy, Stupid Love” on Oct. 21 at 7 p.m. (and then again at 9 p.m.) in Wheeler Auditorium.

If you have never heard of “Crazy, Stupid Love,” Warner Bros. has graciously provided a succinct synopsis to gauge your interest with: read more »


nefariousHuman trafficking is one of those “things” that people feel sorry for but do almost nothing to prevent. Statistics, no matter how shocking, present themselves in a way that requires no emotional commitment from the reader.

A non-profit organization representative presents you with a bunch of facts about some horrific event. You nod and feel bad for the victims involved. You go back home and check your Facebook or YouTube. Sadness is forgotten. Sound familiar?

“Nefarious” is a documentary that reveals the disturbing aspects of modern human trafficking. Exodus Cry, the team behind “Nefarious” is quickly gaining attention and spreading awareness across the country.

A free screening is going to take place right here at Berkeley. Note the word “free.” Free is good, especially when it is towards a great cause. “Nefarious” will be screened at Wheeler Auditorium on Thursday, Sept. 29. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. Remember … FREE. See you there!
