SVA’s 2017 Alumni Film & Animation Festival
Featuring some of School of Visual Arts’ most accomplished film, television, animation, and visual effects alumni, this week-long festival will include screenings, premieres of new work, and behind-the-scenes looks at cinema & television hits and classics, and all events will feature special Q&As with industry insiders.
Since 2005, Faculty member Deborah Ross has been running watercolor workshops in remote villages in Africa. The children she meets refer to the workshops as the “Painting Club,” because the activity has become the center for connecting generations with each other – the elders tell their stories and the children capture them in art. Here, she updates us with a few photos from her most recent journey there.
The School of Visual Arts returned to Hollywood on June 1 to raise the curtain on SVA Premieres, an annual showcase of student films held at the Linwood Dunn Theater at the Pickford Center for Motion Picture Study.
School of Visual Arts will spotlight exceptional live action, documentary, and animated shorts by its most recent graduates from nine different academic departments, including films nominated for Student Academy Awards. Join the filmmakers in the lobby following the screening for a special dessert reception.
