7:00 P to 8:30 P
Join us as we screen and celebrate the achievements of matriculating School of Film Certificate Program students, Patty Salmon and Hart Noecker. Advised by lead faculty member Bushra Azzouz and former faculty member Enie Vaisubrd, the filmmakers will present the short films that they have created as the culminating effort of the School of Film’s extended sequence in filmmaking. FIXING MELISSA is Patty Salmon’s story of a young woman who tries to organize and control her world by obsessively recording her surroundings on Super8mm film. Hart Noecker’s NYX follows a woman who is able to successfully lead two separate lives, until the balance is interrupted. Also screened will be short works by seven individuals who have received tuition assistance through the School of Film’s three scholarship programs: Mario Garza and Ian Geronimo, recipients of David King Scholarships, which remember the life and work of former Film Center student David King; Liz Lewis, Cheryl Lohrmann, Jessica Baclesse, and Katie Rasmussen, recipients of Faerie Godmother Scholarships, which help emerging women filmmakers assume primary creative roles in the field; and Sholeh Dalai, recipient of a True North Scholarship, for beginning filmmakers who are developing a new life around film. The filmmakers will be in attendance to present their work and take questions from the audience. (90 min)
Our thanks to the King Family Foundation, Vicki Mee of the Faerie Godmother Fund of the Oregon Community Foundation, and Debra Sea for making the scholarships possible.
