The fourth annual Lake Maxinkuckee Film Festival, “A Gift of Warmth,” will feature a grand assortment of “fabulous ‘50s” films, kicking off with a gala sponsors’ evening Friday, September 2. As mentioned in last week’s edition of this newspaper, this year’s sponsor’s evening will have a “twist”: six film shorts created and produced by students in Purdue University’s Film and Video Studies department. Each short, says festival committee chairman Gary Shaffer, is five to eight minutes long, and students act in, direct, and produced the films.
