“Telling Stories – Shaping Dreams” is the theme for this year’s festival, which includes a moderated movie industry panel and a filmmakers roundtable on April 7th, followed by the screening of the selected short films on April 8th. The festival, which grew out a classroom project, has crystallized into a platform for burgeoning filmmakers, and provides real time project management experience for the school’s media management students. The event is a win-win situation for the featured filmmakers and the school says Dr.Tilokie Depoo, Professor & Director of Business Programs for MCNY.
“I am looking forward to this year’s festival and it’s maturation into an established annual industry event,” Depoo says. “This event represents an opportunity for the concretization of theoretical MBA competencies by our students, from the demonstration of their leadership skills, to their ability to work as a team, to their use of organizational and fiscal management skills, while it showcases the wonderful collaborative efforts of our students and the media industry.”
The event is free and open to the public. For more information please contact George Kevin Jordan at 917-701-5540. Information is also available on our Facebook page for “Metropolitan College of New York 2nd Annual Short Film Festival.”
