"Portraits" Film and Photo Festival

On Saturday May 2, the Cathedral City Public Arts Commissioned hosted "Portraits," a film/photo festival at the Mary Pickford Theatre based around the work of DATA students. Students were able to submit short films and photos to be judged, recognized, and displayed. In total, 7 projects from DATA DS students were chosen to be screened as finalists, with the top three earning gift cards to Adorama Photo, certificates, and trophies. 

Additionally, the top three films were all created by students in the DATA freshmen class of 2018, showing a lot of talent and potential! A big thanks to Jim Cox and the Cathedral City Public Arts Commission for providing this opportunity to our students.
