Moore Students Going to Disposable Film Festival 2014

Congratulations to Moore College of Art & Design junior Photography & Digital Arts students: Natalie Asarisi, Jacquelyn Daley, Alyssa Dempsey, Kelly Ewing, Melissa Ojeda, Marguerite Pape, Victoria Tolley, Amy Trout, Elissa Tuerk and Kelisa Valinote whose film Vine Dance Compilation has been selected for the Disposable Film Festival 2014 in San Francisco, California.   The film will be screened on the opening night of the Festival, March 20, 2014, in the historic Castro Theatre.  It will be juried by a panel of industry professionals, including legendary indie film producer Ted Hope (In the Bedroom, The Ice Storm, 21 Grams) and Oscar-nominated feature editor Joe Walker (12 Years A Slave, Shame, Hunger).   

The team of student filmmakers would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to everyone who contributed to their crowdsourcing Go Fund Me campaign, which surpassed its $5,000 goal.  The money raised will go towards hotel, food and transportation expenses in San Francisco. 

"This has been a really great project for all of us," Ojeda said. "We worked really well together as a group and we split up the different responsibilities. When we come back from the festival, we’ll be doing a video about the experience."
