Students from the University of Arizona's School of Theatre, Film and Television will be sharing their documentary productions with members of the community.

The documentary shorts will be shown at the Loft Cinema in Tucson Dec. 12 at 7 p.m. during the "What's Up Docs?" event that is free and open to the public.

Organizers say the films will cover everything from culture to politics to religion.

Although not as well-known as some of the larger programs in the country, the UA film program has produced graduates who have moved on to successful careers in many facets of the film industry.

Some have also been successful on the festival circuit, where their productions have been seen by much wider audiences.
