Five CSUF Students Are Finalists in Media Arts Festival

Nov. 1, 2012

Cal State Fullerton has five finalists competing in this year's California State University Media Arts Festival.

Each year, hundreds of CSU students send in their films, videos, screenplays and interactive work for critical review. Faculty judges review the student work and narrow the field to about 35 finalists.

The finalists move on to the final round of judging by industry professionals at the Saturday, Nov. 10, festival at Cal State Fullerton.

The public is invited to the finalist screening where awards will be presented to the winners. The screening/awards ceremony will be held from 6 to 9:30 p.m. in Room 1502 of Steven G. Mihaylo Hall.

Titan finalists are:

  • senior art major Kevin Lam for his animated film "Telly";
  • Jorge Perezchica, a senior majoring in both art and radio-TV-film, for his experimental film "Tragarsele La Tierra: Disappear into the Blue";
  • radio-TV-film senior Scott Kazan, for his experimental film "The War on Love";
  • August radio-TV-film graduate Lauren Small for her narrative film "Grand Escape"; and
  • junior radio-TV-film major Natalie Rodriguez for her short screenplay "Wilson."

"We are very proud of our students and wish them the best as they go into the final judging round," said Ed Fink, chair and professor of radio-TV-film. "We have some very talented students participating and I know they've worked very hard."
