By Kim Brockway
ilmmakers from the School of the Arts Film Division will screen their award-winning short films for industry professionals and members of the public on Tues. Oct. 28, in an event hosted by FOX 2000.
The screenings will be held at the Darryl F. Zanuck Theater at Twentieth Century Fox, Los Angeles. A reception, co-hosted by James Mangold, writer/director of Copland and Heavy and a Film Division alumnus, and FOX 2000, will be held at the Pace Wildenstein Gallery in Beverly Hills the night before. The announcement was made by Lewis Cole, chairman of the Film Division.
"We are delighted to be able to present to the industry a group of directors who have distinguished themselves with superior short works on film," said Cole. "The Columbia Festival, along with the generous support of Polo/Ralph Lauren and New Line, continues to be a major springboard for our students. In the past, films shown in this forum have gone on to win prizes at some of the world's most renowned film festivals, including Sundance, Venice, Berlin and the Directors Guild among others. We are confident that these films and their directors will do no less."
