Center for the Moving Image announces “Bridge Project” student grant awards

Seven DMS graduate students have been awarded grants through the Center for the Moving Image (CMI) in the Department of Media Study to support individual films based on their participation in “The Bridge: An International Art Initiative”.

Last spring the CMI hosted Richard Foreman, a pioneer of American avant-garde theater, and his collaborator Sophie Haviland for an intensive two week film and theater production at the Ukrainian Center in Buffalo. The footage created from that project is now part of “The Bridge”, which has been to nine countries conducting similar workshops. The students will be using the footage made in Buffalo to create their own films.

The seven grant recipients for 2009-10 are: Anna Scime ($1000), Scott Ries ($1000), Kerri Kieser ($1000), Yuichiro Yamada ($1000), Olivier Delrieu-Schulze ($1000), Loren Sonnenberg ($1000), and Brett Williams ($500). A screening of their work will be held in Buffalo and New York City next spring.

Emmy award-winning filmmaker Elliot Caplan, Artistic Director of the CMI and UB professor of Media Study said, “We were the first location chosen in the United States for this prestigious and far-reaching project. We are thrilled that our students will be able to contribute to its continued success and capitalize on this opportunity by producing another generation of work.”

The grants were made possible through the generous support of the Liberace Foundation and the Dean’s Office in the UB College of Arts and Sciences.
