West72 is a Student Short Film Festival at West Los Angeles College created in 2015 by Professor Paul Calderon and Dr. Arnita Porter with the goal of encouraging students to use their smartphones to share their stories, showcase their talent, and demonstrate the knowledge, technical skills, and expertise gained while enrolled in the West Los Angeles College Communication, Entertainment & Media Arts Division.
