Netherlands Media Students to Take 14-Day Program at Hunter

Sixteen students from a top-ranked university in the Netherlands will hone their skills in media arts during an 14-day program at Hunter College, sponsored by the Department of Film and Media Studies. The students will be led by John Driedonks, and Hunter graduate Brian Maston, who earned a Hunter BA in Film (2003) and now teaches as a senior lecturer in Film and Media Studies at the Hogeschool Utrecht—the Utrecht University of Applied Sciences.

The sixteen students, who will be at Hunter from February 15-28, will attend journalism and film/video production courses taught by faculty at Hunter College and the CUNY “J” School. They will produce documentary shorts or video news stories that will be screened along with student work from the Hunter College Department of Film and Media Studies.

The first screening will be held on Thursday, February 20, at 7:00 pm at Lang Recital Hall; the second on Thursday, February 27, at 7:00 pm at HN-502 Screening Room. Both screenings will occur in the Hunter North Building, on the 68th Street Campus and are free and open to the public. A list of directors and screening titles will be forthcoming.
