Celebrate Seton Hall Student Filmmakers!

For the 5th year in a row, the university up the street, Seton Hall, brings their entertaining student shorts to the SOMA Film Festival on March 22 at 3:00 p.m.

Each year, we welcome a Seton Hall intern into our orb and time and again they prove to be industrious, creative, and hard working. We are very excited to see two interns (one past, one present) in this year's program, Amber Puig and Samantha Innamorato.
