JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The Delta Flix Film and Media Festival kicked off at Arkansas State University on Wednesday.
This event gives students the opportunity to showcase their work to the public.
Junior Nikki Logan said she was surprised to discover the number of aspiring film makers right here in Region 8.
"It's very exciting for those people to be getting some recognition for some of the things they've been doing around here," Logan said. "Especially, since they're from this area and I think it's important for people around this area to know whose getting involved in this area."
ASU student Caleb Broussard made a music video to go with a song he wrote. He encourages student to get out and make their own films.
"Just do it," Broussard said. "It's risky but it's very rewarding in the end, and it's a lot of fun. You won't regret it."
The film festival is set to continue through Saturday.
