The Reel Loud Film and Arts Festival is an annual student-organized event at UC Santa Barbara that celebrates student films, art, music, dance, performance, and more. The festival is incredibly unique due to its focus on student-made, silent films with a twist – each film premieres with a band playing musical accompaniment live on stage. In addition to films, Reel Loud hosts a pre-show courtyard reception that features original student art, live performances from local bands and DJs, custom photo booths, interactive art displays, and a silent auction, the proceeds of which are donated to a local Santa Barbara charity.

The event will take place on May 24th from 6:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. in Campbell Hall.
