The annual GBC Film Festival and other artistic ACE projects are funded, in part, by grants from the Nevada Arts Council, a state agency, the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency, and the WESTAF TourWest grant program. The ACE Committee is also responsible for the Argentum literary magazine. Visit the Argentum web page and learn how you can contribute your own literary and artistic talents.

Great Basin College’s 12th Annual Film Festival is back beginning Thursday Feb. 9 through Friday, Feb. 17. This year the festival will feature four carefully selected independent films never before shown in Elko and a special screening of the 2017 Oscar Nominated Short Films.
The independent films which all begin at 6 p.m. will be shown at the GBC Theater. Appetizers are available prior to each movie beginning at 5:30 p.m. Student and senior citizen tickets cost $6.50 and general public tickets cost $7. Tickets can be purchased at the door. A short film will be shown prior to each movie.
GBC Film Fest Chair Russ Minter noted the screening of the Oscar Nominated Shorts was a sold-out success last year. “Due to audience demand we are expanding seating by moving to the Western Folklife Center where we can offer a larger screen and better sound system.”
The 2017 Oscar Nominated Shorts are slated for Friday, Feb. 17. Doors at The Western Folklife Center will open at 5:30 p.m. with the films beginning at 6 p.m.
The Film Festival is just one of several cultural events sponsored by the GBC Arts and Cultural Enrichment Committee (ACE). Information about upcoming events can be found at http://www.gbcnv.edu/ace.
