Vol. 2, No. 2 - April 2008

21st Annual Columbia Film Festival
Comes to LA June 4-6, 2008

Major headway was forged on Tues April 1st as the founding members of CUE welcomed many SOCAL Alumni to an open meeting at the Sanjang Tea Garden. Not only did film school alums represent but also we had the pleasure of meeting others from the Business School, the Journalism school, the Law school and Barnard College.

We would like to introduce our newest CUE Board members: Beth Schacter, Yung Seoul Kim, Alex Otto, Danielle Beeber, Morrisa Maltz, and Sean Breaux. With the advent of our new members and a new committee focused on Career Development we expect to launch expanded features on our website soon, including job/internship listings.

This year we also expect to produce special panels regarding both our craft and the business of working in film. We will be present as we were last year at this year’s Columbia University Film Festival Los Angeles, details to follow...
