    Subject: The Season Premiere of Film School Shorts Coming to KQED 9! - Monday, April 7 @ 7:30pm

    Good Afternoon Rachel!
    This is for you to share with you students! J It’ll be great for them to see what other student filmmakers are capable of, and they’ll be aware of this show/program so they can submit in the future.
    A friendly email about the second season of Film School Short’s premiering on KQED 9 this Monday 4/7 at 7:30pm PT.
    Film School Shorts showcases the best student films across country, including award-winners from Sundance, Cannes, SXSW, Toronto, and the Student Academy Awards. We give schools and students opportunities to reach national audiences and are the best way for film lovers and organizations to stay aware of new, emerging talent…a few of which are Bay Area natives!
    Our films are recognized for their gorgeous cinematography, unforgettable performances and colorful locales. With executive producers like Spike Lee and actors you’ve seen on Lost, Grey’s Anatomy, Battlestar Galactica, and Gilmore Girls, these films rival the industry’s best fictional offerings.
    Please help us start this season off with a bang! The second season opens with two Student Academy Award–winning films: Eusong Lee’s Will and Mark Raso’s Under. You can show your support for student filmmakers and public television by sharing FSS online!
    Here are some easy tweets you can copy and paste:
