This is the first annual (can it be annual if it's the first?) Golden Boar Awards. Far from boring, these short films were produced by students in German 101 and 102 and will be showcased this evening.
Refreshments will be provided, and please note: this is a semi-formal occasion, celebrating these students' success as budding German filmmakers and speakers.
The award ceremony is named for Porcellino, the bronze statue of a boar that sits outside Modern Languages and is the mascot of the Faculty of Arts. It represents courage and bravery in the face of adversity, which is something these students have certainly dealt with by producing these shorts in their new foreign language.
