UNIS Students Win Big at the New York Alliance Film Festival

We are proud to announce that two films produced by IB Film students recently were recognized at the New York Alliance Film Festival.

Skylar Jennings earned first place in the category Narrative — Short Form for his writing, directing, and editing of Vacuum. The film tells the story of a teenager with inattentive parents who decides to end his life of hiding and awaits his mother's return from work with a surprise. Jennings worked with UNIS students Serena Aimen (cinematographer), Tim Moerkens (sound recordist), and Saverio Cesaretti (actor).

Students Milena Krondl and Janneke Wade-de Jong were awarded second place in the Documentary category for their piece Union Square, September 2016. Their work features people in New York City's Union Square talking about their lives.

As part of the festival both features were screened at the AMC 25 mega-plex in Times Square.
