A select group of Full Sail Film students got a head start on the Hall of Fame week festivities on Friday, with an exclusive screening of ‘Mother’s Day,’ the latest film directed by 2011 Hall of Fame inductee Darren Lynn Bousman.

The film hasn’t been released in the U.S. yet, but Film students were given the opportunity to attend the private viewing at Enzian Theater (home of the Full Sail-sponsored Florida Film Festival). http://www.fullsail.edu/news/top-news/2011-03-11-florida-film-festival-2011 Following the screening, Darren engaged in a Q&A session with the audience, giving students an inside look at the making of the film and sharing the insight about the entertainment industry that he’s developed over the course of his career.

The three films have grossed a combined total of $450 million worldwide. His additional credits include the horror projects 11-11-11 as well as the cult musical Repo! The Genetic Opera.
