The Roost

Student storytellers here on our campus - the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga - create in more than one kind of media.

The Roost is a filmmaking club for UTC students - and on Monday, April 22nd, it will host the Roosties: a film festival “by students for students,” starting at 7 PM in the University Center Auditorium.

Lio Mercedes is president of The Roost - and Lili Ford and Marietta Song are also members of The Roost.
