Death by Doorknob! Students in the Roy H. Park School of Communications took on the challenge of producing a film in which a character dies from a doorknob. This year’s Golden Doorknob Film Screening and Awards Ceremony will take place on Friday, April 30 at 7 p.m. in Park Hall Auditorium.

Why a doorknob? Ithaca College professor emeritus of cinema and photography Gustav "Skip" Landen (1924 -2009) started the Golden Doorknob competition in 1970 and continued it until his retirement in 1991. Back in those days the films were silent, black and white, and all of the Park School's film students had the assignment: make a very short film that presents the most imaginative way to kill someone with a doorknob.
