NIU To Host Reality Bytes Film Festival

Apr 1, 2016

Northern Illinois University will hold its 15th annual Reality Bytes Film Festival April 5th through 7th

The event will feature a variety of submissions, ranging from short narratives and animations to full blown mini-documentaries.  While the event began with just NIU students, Director and NIU Media Professor Laura Vazquez says it’s expanded to include films from around the country, and even Russia and Australia.  She says the foreign films are particularly useful when it comes to cultural education.  

Friday was the first court appearance for six of the Northern Illinois University employees accused of theft in a case known as “the coffee fund.”
