Filmmaker magazine's annual survey of new talent, 25 New Faces of Independent Film, includes five current or past Columbia students.
The five include:
• Fellipe Barbosa, a 2006 School of the Arts (SOA) graduate, whose short film, Salt Kiss, played at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival;
• Hope Dickson Leach, a 2005 SOA graduate, whose short, The
Dawn Chorus, played at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival;
• Moon Molson, a current SOA student, whose short film Pop Foul, has won the HBO short film award,
prizes at SXSW, the Independent Film Festival of Boston and third place at
the 2006 Student Academy Awards;
•Tze Chun, a 2002 Columbia College graduate, whose short
film, Windowbreaker, played at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival; and
Barthes, a 2003 graduate of the School of International and Public Affairs, who attended the Sundance Screenwriters and Directors Lab
with her screenplay, Cold Souls.
"Filmmaker magazine’s survey of new talent is eagerly awaited each
year," said Dan Kleinman, acting dean of SOA. "That five of the 25 selected this year are Columbians is further
recognition of Columbia’s leading role in the training of independent
filmmakers. We are proud of what these young directors have done so far,
and we anticipate eagerly the films in their future."
