FUSION FILM FESTIVAL 2019
April 4, 5 and 6 at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts
Kanbar Institute of Film & TV
The FUSION FILM FESTIVAL is New York University’s premiere student run festival dedicated to celebrating women in film, television, and new media from student to icon. Founded in 2003 at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts by two students Emma Heald and Gina Abatemarco, FUSION has been passionately guided by Kanbar Professor Susan Sandler.
Fusion offers programming throughout the school year, culminating in our ENTIRELY FREE three day spring festival of screenings, industry panels, master classes, retrospectives, networking events, and competitions in fourteen categories all focused on women’s voices and work behind the camera. Fusion is proud to be an Allied Partner of the Sundance Institute’s Women’s Initiative.
In the seventeen years since its launch, Fusion has attracted scores of accomplished artists and visionaries including Melina Matsoukas, Reed Morano, Christine Vachon, Misha Green, Kasi Lemmons, Miranda July, Stella Meghie, Maryse Alberti, Barbara Kopple, and Jane Campion to mentor and inspire the next generation of great storytellers.
This year FUSION honors Amy Sherman-Palladino, Emmy award winning creator of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and The Gilmore Girls as our Woman of the Year at our Opening Night event at the Cantor Film Center on April 4.
