Please join us to cheer on our students and COMD as two films have been selected as finalists and are up for potential awards at the 2020 CUNY Film Festival on Saturday, May 16 at 7 PM. The virtual awards ceremony will be streamed at the link below, followed by an exclusive screening of the nominated student documentary and a student Q&A session moderated by Professor Josh Kapusinski. If you have time, please check it out as it’s inspiring and important to see their classmate’s success and hard work being recognized. The director and producer of one of the nominated films are both COMD graphic design students – so this is applicable to all students, not just video students.
