Among the SUNY Oswego students who crewed a film that documented the 2016 SUNY-Wide Film Festival on April 8 and 9 are (from left) Issack Cintron ’17, Garvin Wells ’16, Max Fehr ’16, James Snover ’16 and Matt Soffietti ’16. They represent festival director Joshua Adams and his 38-student class on “Film Festivals History and Practice,” which organized events surrounding the competition for best films submitted from schools in the SUNY system. The festival screened the best in filmmaking from around SUNY—six of the 35 official selections were from SUNY Oswego students—and featured a keynote address from Killer Films’ Christine Vachon. The following alumni were also included in the event: Robin Curtis ’78, Mark Martino ’12, Peter Myers ’15 and Matt Smith ’15. Cinema professor and festival organizer Amy Shore helped bring the festival to Oswego in 2015, and the college plans to host it again next year.
