We are happy to announce that the BFA Film department will be part of the First Look Film Festival at the Museum of the Moving Image  — one of America’s foremost institutions dedicated to film. The festival runs Wednesday, Mar 16 – Sunday, Mar 20. This is a juried festival at which many emerging filmmakers will be debuting work. It’s a great place to meet people in the industry, agents, producers and festival curators in both social and discussion events  Works by current SVA students and recent alumni will be screened — those chosen will be announced this week.
