Since the BAM's last report on the Ivy Film Festival, which ran in the July/August 2005 issue, this entirely student-run event has remained the fastest growing of its kind in the eastern United States. Each spring we continue to bring student filmmakers and aspiring screenwriters together with industry professionals. Recently, the festival has brought back such notable alumni as Michael Showalter ’92, Lisa Gossels ’82, Richard Heller ’74, John Hamburg ’92, and Ellen Kuras ’81.
The Ivy Film Festival continues to grow and to achieve success largely because of the contributions from Brown alumni. As planning for the 2007 Ivy Film Festival accelerates, the staff invites you to participate as judges, speakers, sponsors, promoters, and industry liaisons.
The 2007 festival will run from Wednesday, April 11, through Sunday, April 15. More information can be found at www.ivyfilmfestival.com. Thank you in advance for your help and enthusiasm.
