Myers’ ‘Snovi’ nominated for Student Oscar – see it tonight!


BIG congratulations to alum Jonathon Myers and the team behind the short film Snovi (which also includes director Reshad Kulenovic and producer Claire Wasserman, who are BU alums; and co-writer John Bernstein, director of BU's screenwriting program) -- the film has been nominated for a Student Academy Award in the Narrative category! The Student Academy Awards is an annual competition for college and university filmmakers. 

Snovi has been an official selection of the Tallinn Film Festival 2010, Cinequest Film Festival 2011, and The European Independent Film Festival (ECU) 2011. The film was also included in the Sarajevo Film Festival last summer, and Jonathon gave Playwrights’ Perspective an inside look at the film and its creation.

But the best news (for us, anyway) is that tonight we have the opportunity to see this acclaimed film for ourselves, in Room B05 of the Communications Building, 640 Commonwealth Ave. The event includes a post-screening discussion, and begins at 6:30 p.m.
