Great Student Film Competition
I spent the day with the finalists for the Angelus Film Festival. The grand prize is $10,000. There are several other money prizes. Also included are screenings at the DGA, trips to Sundance, the Toronto Film Festival and a special festival in Prague or Rome. If any readers are still in film school, read on and check out this wonderful organization.
The 208 winners were announced today. I was the featured speaker at this happy event. And we had a wonderful lunch prepared by Chef Brian from “Top Chef.”
