"We are delighted by the international recognition the films are receiving and for the growing industry support of this screening,” said Professor Lisanne Skyler, Division Head. The Film & Television program is welcoming some new sponsors and some returning sponsors from the film industry, including Fancy Film Post ; Entertainment Partners, the creator of Movie Magic Budgeting and Scheduling; Film Tucson; Pollution Studios ; Other World Computing; as well as the UA Hanson Film Institute. Some of the sponsors are offering generous and meaningful awards to celebrate the film students' accomplishments and help them continue to make films.

“ It’s not lost on me that it’s a privilege to have a student film shown at a venue like the Fox Theatre, on a big screen with an audience of hundreds,” said senior filmmaker, Alex Guyton.
“I think it’s a responsibility to put out something that’s worthwhile and worthy of all the pomp and circumstance. I hope they (the audience members)
have fun, enjoy it and laugh.”
