We are immensely proud of the track record of our students.  Their films have aired on PBS stations and cable networks including the Sundance Channel and have been recognized with Student Emmy and Student Academy Award nominations and wins. They have also been named as official selections in over 100 national and international film festivals and have received Best Documentary awards in both student and non-student categories.
