Students in Nonfiction Film will create short film profiles of Keokuk residents, with the goal of telling stories of individuals who are working to make a difference in their community and are contributing to its vitality and growth.

Students in the Department of Cinematic Arts will work with Keokuk residents who have contributed to the growth of their community with the work they do.  The film profiles created will help portray Keokuk from a variety of unique perspectives. Film students Calvin Leslie and Wesley Woods created film profiles of three Keokuk residents who are making a difference in their community: Tom Richardson, current mayor of Keokuk, and Mike Greenwald and Leah Jones, co-owners of Radio Keokuk.  Enjoy these film portraits below!
