FLORENCE, Ala. - Films in the Young Filmmakers category at this year's George Lindsey UNA Film Festival share a common focus on relationships. Screening Friday at 4 p.m., "Charlie's Closet" kicks off the group of films made by elementary and high school students. Spencer Reed's feature-length film tells the story of a young girl living in a new town who befriends the monster in her closet. Luke Broyles' film "Michael" is about his real-life friend who faces some very unique challenges. In "Everything That Dies," director Russell Carter shows how love can be challenged by adult life. All films will screen at the Zodiac Theatre, 416 N. Court Street, Florence. Screenings are free and open to the public. The 14th annual George Lindsey UNA Film Festival is one of the few film festivals hosted by a university. The event was founded in 1998 in part by UNA alumnus and celebrated actor and entertainer George Lindsey. Lindsey's own film career has included several important roles, including the character Goober Pyle on "The Andy Griffith Show."
