City College inaugural Student Film Showcase hits big screen

Nine student films were featured at the Student Flim Showcase.


By Sonny Garibay, Sports Editor

When the San Diego City College Film Society opened for submissions for its inaugural Student Film Showcase, it had only two requirements: The film must be 15 minutes or less and made by a City College student.

The end result was a creative collection of unique short films spanning a variety of genres. 

Some students used the event as an outlet to display their humor. Such was the case with “Pasta the Clown,” made by a student known simply as Emilio, and the single-camera comedy-suspense film “Intruder” by Cameron King. 

Other filmmakers took on more serious subjects. Filmmaker Evan Apodaca’s submission, “How Far I Am,” is a social commentary on the changing attitudes across generations, assimilation, and understanding one’s culture and heritage as a person of mixed race. Apodaca does this by interviewing his own family and learning its history.

Weekly workshop hosted at Student Affairs


Workshops aim to get students connected to the available resources on campus.

By Elizabeth Vermeulen, Staff Writer

A Leadership Academy Workshop is available to San Diego City College students every week through the office of Student Affairs. 

A total of nine weekly workshops are being held in room M201 every Tuesday from 11 a.m. to noon.

“The hope is that students walk away a little bit more empowered in their vision for their journey,” said Alexis Hithe, educational technician in Student Affairs and dean’s assistant.

Hithe looks to bring attention to the many resources available on campus that some students may not partake in due to stigmas and time conflicts. 

“This workshop breaks things down to the root,” Hithe said. “(It) tries to get students to really get to the part of themself that can connect with those resources.” 

Topics discussed through these workshops are more of the big picture side of things, rather than just the nuts and bolts.

Badminton wins conference championship, moves on to playoff
Tennis, softball, baseball and beach volleyball seasons coming to a close.


By Sonny Garibay, Sports Editor

The San Diego City College badminton team capped of its season with a 14-7 win over Irvine Valley College to earn a Pacific Coast Athletic Conference championship on Friday.

“(There) were alot of ups and downs,” said Knights coach Darby Duprat when reflecting on the season.

The coach is proud of what the team has been able to accomplish this year. 

“They did really well inspiring one another. Even though we have players that don’t have that much experience. Seeing someone who has a lot of experience prior they’re just like, ‘Wow that really motivates me to do better.’”

The Knights put off celebrating immediately after the game and waited for the conference to decide whether to replay a match earlier in the season between IVC and Grossmont College.
