UA School of Theatre, Film & Television Presents their Annual BFA Student Thesis Films Screening Event I Dream in Widescreen

 Tucson, AZ – UA School of Theatre, Film & Television presents their annual screening of BFA student thesis films, I Dream in Widescreen on Saturday, April 27, 2019 at 7pm at the Fox Tucson Theatre located at 17 W. Congress Street, Tucson, AZ. 

 I Dream in Widescreen is a remarkable showcase of original films created by the talented student filmmakers from the UA School of Theatre, Film & Television.  This event is the first major unveiling of the student films before they are taken to film festivals all over the world.

Associate Professor Jacob Bricca proudly acknowledged, “Half of last year’s I Dream in Widescreen films went on to screen at film festivals across the country, including the Austin Music Video Festival (Austin, TX), the End of Days Film Festival (Longwood, FL), the Chandler Intl. Film Festival (Chandler, AZ) and Tucson’s own Loft Fest, but they premiered first at I Dream in Widescreen.  Films from the 2017 show continued their success throughout 2018, with screenings at the Portland Film Festival (Portland, OR), the Brooklyn Women’s Film Festival (NYC), and on broadcast television on KQED Film School Shorts.”

The themes and styles of this year’s films are quite diverse.  From Hannah Sweet’s exploration of a world filled with death and decay in Desert Flesh to Alex Zhao’s story of a student’s battle with a rogue robot in Artificial Incompetence to Aaron Cargile’s mystery of the theft and recovery of a priceless Willem de Kooning painting in Ochre, the films are inspired by the students’ own experiences and creative imagination.  For a complete list of films and filmmakers, please visit IDIWS Films & Filmmakers.

Students compete for awards in nine categories, with cash prizes totaling $1,500 and in-kind awards totaling over $4,000.  The panel of jurors features an impressive group of well-known professionals in the filmmaking industry.  Jurors include filmmakers Allison Anders (Gas Food Lodging) and Tyler Gillett (V/H/S), a 2004 graduate from the School of Theatre, Film & Television program, as well as Katie Walsh, a renowned film critic for the LA Times and Tribune News Service.

The School of Theatre, Film & Television is delighted, to partner with sponsors Adobe, Monsoon Production Services, Tucson Film Office, Entertainment Partners, OWC, Pollution Studios, and Hanson Film TV Institute to offer these awards to its students.  The School of Theatre, Film & Television is also thrilled to have Rica and Harvey Spivak as Screening Sponsors for the 2019 event.

“We’re excited to include a brand-new sponsor this year, Tucson’s own Monsoon Production Services, who are giving an incredibly generous $1,500 credit toward equipment rental to the winner of the Monsoon Production Services Award for Excellence in Cinematography,” noted Professor Bricca.
