Photojournalism students taught by Jay Capers and Khadejeh Nikouyeh produced an 18 minute documentary video entitled “Blue and Gold Marching Machine” that features the musicians and dancers of the North Carolina A&T State University’s marching band, now in their 100th year.

RCC photography graduate, Griffin Hart Davis, presented his 10 minute narrative short film entitled “Fall of the Matador” that depicts a matador who struggles with his emotional and spiritual existence as he practices his craft of bullfighting. Another RCC photography graduate, Eric Waters, was among those who assisted Griffin with the project.

These two films with Randolph Community College connections are among 59 juried films that were included in the 2019 Official Selections for the Longleaf Film Festival.
