Winners of the 7th Annual Fusion Film Festival Announced


Organizers of the 2010 Fusion Film Festival were not going to let a record snowfall in New York City stop them from holding the final and arguably the most important night of the Festival. Although forced to postpone the closing night screenings and announcement of the winners, the Festival was reconvened a week later (March 5). The Fusion Film Festival is a student-run event at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts and celebrates the work of women filmmakers.
