Netherlands Media Students to Take 11-Day Program at Hunter

Sixteen students from a top-ranked university in the Netherlands will hone their skills in media arts during an 11-day program at Hunter sponsored by the Department of Film and Media Studies. They will be led by a Hunter graduate who now teaches in the Netherlands.

The 16, who will be at Hunter from February 14-February 24, are from Hogeschool Utrecht—the Utrecht University of Applied Sciences. All are students of Brian Maston, who earned a Hunter bachelor’s in Film and is now a senior lecturer in Film and Media studies, and Dutch colleague/TV producer John Driedonks. This is the second year Maston has brought a group of Hogeschool students to Hunter.

While at Hunter, the students will attend journalism and film and video production courses taught by Hunter professors. They will also produce documentary shorts or video news feature stories that will be shown at screenings co-sponsored by a newly organized student club, the Hunter Student Film and Media Guild.

The visit is being organized by Professor James Roman, chair of the Film and Media Department; David Pavlosky (BA ‘2003), a graduate student in the Film and Media Department’s Integrated Media Arts Program; and Maston.

The first screening will be held on Thursday, February 17, at 7 pm; and the second, on Thursday, February 24, at 7 pm. Both will be held in the Screening Lab in Room 502 North Building on the 68th Street Campus.
