Thursday, March 09, 2017
GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- Raymundo Peralta, Cinema major and student in Fellion’s class, hopes this event will be a moment student filmmakers will remember and cherish for years to come. “It is a film festival that is by SF State, for SF State, so we definitely want to keep that alive and make sure that the film community in SF State continues to grow and maybe 10 or 15 years from now we can all look back and say ‘Hey, I was there,’” Peralta said. “We definitely want to keep that as a good memory a couple years from now.” According to Fellion, the Hollywood Reporter ranked SF State as one of the 25 best American film schools last year. “What is unique about the cinema department and this whole presentation is that it’s not competitive, it’s collaborative,” Haack said. “Students are not working against each other, they are working with each other, which is kind of what SF State is really about.”
