For it's 41st year, the student-run film festival, The Big Muddy takes off next week.

The festival showcases independent filmmakers from all over the world for a week, at no cost.

President of the Big Muddy Crew Aster Arseneau says for the southern Illinois region, the festival is a cultural institution.

"Well, I'm from Carbondale, and I feel this is a love letter to Carbondale from me since I'm leaving soon because it allows people to see films they wouldn't see anywhere else," Arseneau said.
