Edmondson Film Outreach Grant Awarded to Two Senior Thesis Filmmakers

In May, the 2015 J.H. Edmondson Film Outreach Grant was awarded to two seniors, Lauren Antonoff '15 and Dillon Tanner '15, in support of their completed thesis films. Lauren's documentary "Mictlan" tells the story of exploitation central to the establishment of a five-star Mexican resort. Dillon's experimental fiction film "Puny" explores the psychic experience of isolation through live action, stop motion, and drawn animation.

The purpose of the J.H. Edmondson Film Outreach Grant is to support the work of exceptional student filmmakers by encouraging them to reach out to audiences beyond the college community. Grantees are reimbursed for costs of up to $100 associated with festival applications or community screenings for their awarded projects. The fund was established through a seed donation by the Joseph Henry Edmondson Foundation, which is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life throughout Colorado's Pikes Peak region and is steeped in the values of service, creativity, inquiry, and respect for community.
