My involvement with this little student-run film festival began in 2008 when it was called ‘Salmagundi Film Festival.’  In 2009 I became the director of the film festival and would be for the next 2 years.  I did all sorts of things, including changing the name a few times, but you can read about it in the Daily Progress in 2009 -> [here][here] for 2010 !

In 2009, Comedian Sarah Tiana hosted the events. The guests include: Lane Kneedler (AFI Programmer), Matthew Arden (Producer/Writer/Director for Turner Entertainment), Jeff Lowell (Writer of “John Tucker Must Die” and “Over Her Dead Body”, and Eric Hurt (Local writer/director)
