Friday night was a magical night at the DGA Theater. 14 fabulous films screened to a packed house of 400 plus family, friends, and film enthusiasts.
Top honors went to Yang Wang’s ”The Little Violinist”. And right behind in the runner up position was Ed Hellman’s film, “Retire For The Evening.” We also awarded prizes for best Cinematography, which ended in a tie between, Jon Beanlands, DP for “Calaveras” by Jaime Medrano Jr.’s, and Igor Kropotov for “The Fling” by Ken Lott. Best Actor was won by Anthony Ruiz for his performance in “Calaveras” and Best Actress was won by Qingyu Chen for her performance in “The Little Violinist”.
The festival was a great success. Each of the films is sure to have a life long after the students leave the MPS nest. Congratulations to all the filmmakers!!!

We are just 25 days away from our 2013 Graduate Film Festival! 14 films from quirky to queer will premier at the Director’s Guild of America Theater on May 24th!
The films are all picture locked and beginning the exciting process of color correction and sound mixing.
We are so excited about this year’s films and so proud of the Class of 2013. This year’s festival captures the diversity and depth of our program from the poignant, “The Little Violinist”, a film by Yang Wang about the delicate relationship between a young prodigy and her trash-picker father to the eccentric, “I Also Don’t Know What I’m Doing Now”, a film by Daewon Choi about a geek on search of his lost obsessional object who discovers treasure nearby, to the eerie, “The Pod”, a film by Eric Pennycoff about a man in a pod roaming outer space who is confronted by his infidelity on earth.
Coming soon, more details about our 14 films and information about our festival. Stay tuned and mark your calendars!
Ed Caban’s film tells the story of a lonely, elderly widower who meets a young woman at a local bar and invites her to join him for a holiday dinner with his estranged family.
Produced as part of the Short Film program at SVA, Qing Mei’s “Morse Code” is the story of a sensitive Asian girl who talks to an unknown person through Morse Code in a strange house.
