Have fun and learn about entomology during this film festival! Ask graduate students at the event about starting an independent plan of study in Entomology.

The theme of IFFF will be Exploding Arthropod Fear Films, featuring the movies Bug (1975) and Lavalantula (2015). Admission as always is FREE and open to the public. Doors open at 6 pm. In addition to the films, there will also be the traditional IFFF activities, including face painting, the insect petting zoo, insect balloon animals, and exhibition of insect artwork from local schools. Come see entomology department head May Berenbaum at 7pm talk about the warped "science" behind the feature films.
