This year, Columbia College Chicago was an Institute Associate of the Sundance Film Festival. In a Sundance-sanctioned event on Saturday, we screened six alumni short films and one alumni feature film, The Trouble with the Truth. Thank you to our sponsor Connie’s Pizza of Chicago for providing an incredible Chicago-style lunch!
On Sunday, Columbia alumna Lena Waithe (BA '06) sat down with the chair of the new Cinema Art + Science Department, Bruce Sheridan, to talk about her experiences in the industry. Lena is one of the producers on the film Dear White People, which won the U. S. Dramatic Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Talent. Please join us in offering our congratulations to Lena and the cast and crew!
