NIC participates in film festival

     Philippe Valle, NIC Graphic Design instructor, will be hosting the French movie "Medecin de Campagne," ("Irreplaceable") at the Spokane International Film Festival (SpIFF) noon Sunday, Jan. 29, at the Magic Lantern Theater in Spokane.

     "It is a great honor to have selected this feature as it relates to the medical professions and important decisions made in this career that might interest students entering this field, and current doctors alike," Valle said.

     Rolling off "Hippocrates," which world-premiered at the Cannes' Critics' Week to warm reviews, doctor-turned-filmmaker Thomas Lilti delves once again into the medical world with "Irreplaceable" ("The Country Doctor - Medecin de Campagne"). The social dramedy stars Francois Cluzet ("Intouchables") as a devoted and revered countryside doctor.

     Valle also organized this year's "Posterize" exhibit featuring professional graphic designers mixed with some of his current students and recent graduates from the NIC Graphic Design program. Designers chose one of the 30 movie features and created a unique poster to accompany each viewing during the festival being held Jan. 27 to Feb. 5. Of the 30 posters, 16 were produced by NIC Graphic Design students and two were created by NIC instructors.

     The exhibit opens Friday, Jan. 27, at The Bing with the movie "The Basket," produced and filmed in Spokane featuring Peter Coyote, Ellen Travolta and local actors.  

     Other NIC participants in this year's festival include students Hannah Stack, Joseph Reimer, Julie Sutcliffe, Samantha Bricca, Savannah Roop, Doug Anderson, Christian L Lewis, Madeline Jensen, Keren Flores, Connor Johnson, Miranda Buechler, Joshua Blakley, Annalise Luttropp, Madison Inouye, Savannah Burns, Michael Stephenson, and instructors Dave Kelley and George Pons.
