Congrats to IMA alumna Iva Radivojevic! She is the recipient of 2017 Princess Grace Special Project Award. Iva has received the 2011 Film Graduate Scholarship and 2012 Special Projects Princess Grace Award.
Rewire featured a Q&A with IMA alumna Melissa Saucedo Gonzalez about her thesis film Before David. Melissa’s film has also received the 2016 IMA MFA Graduate Student Aronson Awards for Documentary short.
Melissa uncovers a mental heath issue rarely spoken about — prenatal depression, and the difficulties experienced when confronting changes in one’s body, lifestyle, identity and belief systems.
