909 FILM FESTIVAL

University of La Verne Communications students also distinguished themselves at the 909 Film Festival at Pitzer College, where five of 13 films produced by University of La Verne filmmakers were screened.

Adjunct professor Scott Essman’s film “Trane and Miles,” about iconic jazz figures John Coltrane and Miles Davis, set in 1959, won the audience choice award. La Verne communications graduate Jacquie Basatroos edited the film and several current La Verne students also worked on the film.

Three films produced by University of La Verne communications department students were also screened at the festival.

“Gainey Ceramics”, a short documentary about the longtime ceramics plant on Arrow Highway, was produced by Carissa Miranda, Ariel Devore and Jetske Wauran.

The same student team also produced “AMOCA”, a short documentary about the American Museum of Ceramics Arts in Pomona.

“House of the Dead” an experimental short, based on a popular video game and produced by Alexander Clague, Spencer Bruno and Christopher Mitzel, was also screened at the festival.

“September,” a segment of a longer film about all 12 months of the year, was co-produced by and starred April Hava Shankman, a University of La Verne theatre department graduate.

The 909 Film Festival celebrates filmmakers who live and work in the 909 area code and who produce films in the 909. The festival is organized by the Pitzer College Media studies program.
