We are saddened to hear that Rob Lucas, our friend and former member of our club, has passed away. Rob touched many lives at The University of Akron and he was always a top supporter of the film community in our city and our community. He was the kind of person to always lend a hand and show kindness to others. He will be missed but his legacy and his love live on.

Rob Lucas passed away peacefully last night after a long battle with cancer. He will forever exist within our hearts and in everything that is Akron Film and The Nightlight.

We are all better for having known his kindness, ambition, and thoughtfulness. His love for film, friends, and family inspired and welcomed us. To see him at an event was to feel at home.

Our dear friend, we will continue your vision, and we will lead with love by your example. @ The Nightlight

Attention 2380 members, prospective members, and followers: You've probably heard by now that UA is cancelling classes until after spring break, then moving online. Sadly for us, this means that we must cancel general meetings for 2380 until further notice. For now we will be meeting remotely and communicating via our groupchat.
As for our events that we had planned for the semester, our film camera workshop has been postponed until at least after April 20th.
We will continue moving forward with making our short film and planning the spring film festival at this time. If that changes, we will let you know.
If anybody has any questions, please feel free to reach out to us via our page or our email, [email protected]. We will post further updates as they come.
In the meantime, wash your hands and enjoy this delightful cat picture!

Just checked out this film club page and thought it was really cool! I noticed you all have collaborated with the Nightlight cinema, which I posted a film recommendation on, and so I figured I’d do the same here. I just recently started watching more indie films and thought I’d share one I enjoyed recently called Empathy, Inc. It involves a startup tech company that has created a new type of virtual reality experience, but when a recently broke venture capitalist gets involved, he realizes everything isn’t as it seems. The film definitely gave me The Twilight Zone and Black Mirror vibes while watching it, so if you’re a fan of that I would highly recommend watching the trailer for it on Youtube. Also, if anyone has any indie film recommendations they’d like to leave me, please feel free!
This Saturday at 9:10 pm at Cinematheque at the Cleveland Institute of Art
