From Chris Alender (BFA  98). “Hey guys, good news, our movie THE WIND is playing in Tallahassee at Cap City Video Lounge starting tomorrow April 12! If you recall, this is the movie that is based on The Winter - Teresa Sutherland's (MFA 12) thesis film, produced by Chris Alender and edited by Alex Amick (BFA 10).  This is a two-weekend run.  You can get complete information at https://www.facebook.com/events/1080165692184880/ and can get tickets from that page.     NOTE:  They will also be screening at the Plaza Theatre in ATL on April 16 – will give you more info on times later.  Short Q&A with Chis Alender and the composer following the ATL screening.

Get your tickets now for the Tallahassee premiere of local award winning filmmaker Thomas Wade Jackson's  (MFA 98) new documentary, “A Prayer For Compassion”. We'll have a pre-reception in the theater at 6:30pm with food and drinks to sample and the screening will be at 7pm followed by a Q&A with the director. Make sure to get you tickets before they sell out. This award winning film follows Thomas on a quest to make a better world for his daughter that crisscrosses America and takes him to Morocco for the UN Climate Conference and throughout the Indian subcontinent to ask the question, “Can compassion grow to include all beings? Can people who identify as religious or spiritual come to embrace the call to include all human and nonhuman beings in our circle of respect and caring and love?”  Screening at the Tallahassee CMX on Wednesday, May 16, at 6:30 PM.

From Brandon Shenk (MFA 18). “Yining Xu (MFA 18) and I are making a small feature film, titled Portrait of a Young Man, this coming August in Florida. It's about a High School boy's struggle with identity and an eating disorder. Currently we're running a Kickstarter campaign to help raise funds for production. So, if you have any interest in supporting the cause, we'd love for you to check us out at  www.poaymkickstarter.com<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.poaymkickstarter.com&d=DwMFaQ&c=HPMtquzZjKY31rtkyGRFnQ&r=XK14IrgIaB-M4DhdHvEVmw&m=LAwPxtGtD-YV0gUCbOdDy9eNddY-8wbT7A-eqmuUaCk&s=7r6I5YUb32BflUA6HY_ei81WgjNIdIjishdgUBBWTyU&e=>.

Request for Film Services “This is an opportunity for individuals to gain further film experience and a way to express appreciation for America’s military veterans. Request:  Heroes Not Forgotten, a small Tallahassee based 501c3 nonprofit, is seeking one or two volunteers to finish editing, shoot retakes and create voice dubs for its public service film Heroes Not Forgotten – An Americanism Film.  The film honors and remembers America’s military veterans and educates America’s youth about Americanism.  The film is an all-volunteer project (scriptwriter, producer, director, cast, crew, film maker, others).   Additional Film Information:  Please visit heroesnotforgotten.org for film information, including a film’s storyline and intended audience. Contact:  If interested, please contact Don, HNF, by emailing heroesnotforgotten at yahoo.com or by texting or phoning 850-933-3716.

Still trying to obtain class leaders to work with their classmates to help us gather memorabilia for our Film School 30th Anniversary.   We have mega classes still without a leader and are hoping you might be willing to help - renewing contacts with your classmates to help us generate photos, memories, etc., for various uses during the coming year.  We'd like to have a separate class leader for the MFA Writing  and Production classes, as well as for the BFA Production and ADA classes.  I can help you with email address for class members the leader(s) may not already have.   The leader(s) might also help us plan alumni related events or activities.  Will you do this – be a class leader to help us make this year an amazing celebration of our alumni and the Film School?   If so, please get back to me as soon as you can because we are ready to get this started!   Following are the classes without leaders (this is an updated list):
BFA:  1995-97, 2002, 2004-5, 2007, 2015-16, 2018
BFA ADA:  2015, 2018
MFA:  1995-1998, 2000-2002, 2004, 2006-9, 2011-2012, 2016
MFA Writing:   2006-2007, 2009-2016
