A short film by Andrew Reed, graduating MFA student this spring, was selected to screen at the River Run Film Festival this April.

In his 7-minute narrative short, Old Timer, an elderly man relives his boyhood through a backyard game of wiffle ball with his family.

“We always try to play a game of wiffle ball whenever my extended family gets together, said Reed. “Even my grandpa joins in on the fun. My intention was to capture the childlike joy we all experience in this film.”

The RiverRun International Film Festival , based in Winston-Salem, NC, is one of the premier film festivals in the southeastern United States. The 16th annual RiverRun will be held April 4–13, 2014.
