ONLY CRIMINALS RECEIVES COMMENDATION FOR DIRECTING

Friday, April 16th, 2010

We traveled to NYC last weekend for the screening of John’s film, Only Criminals, at the NYU First Run Film Festival.  It was bittersweet at best but how splendid to view such accomplished student filmmaking.  It was evident that although themes were similar, each director’s “eye” was wholly distinct.  Only Criminals shared the faculty commendation for Direction with Too Sunny for Santa, a charming and endearing film by Erica Tachoir. Bravo Erica!  We thank everyone who took the time to support John and those who worked so fervently to complete Only Criminals.
