Student Awards Showcase

Winners of the Grillo and Goldfarb Awards

Student Awards Showcase
The Goldfarb and Grillo Awards are designed to encourage excellence in filmmaking and help defray some of the expenses required to pursue a degree in film production. A total of $12,000 will be distributed each year to four tiers of production students. Final recipients and individual award amounts will be determined each semester (including summer session) by a panel of judges made up of CU Film Studies faculty and a Grillo family member. The award winning films will be shown over the course of both nights with Grillo family members and Film Studies faculty present. The Grillo Awards are drawn from a University of Colorado Foundation fund set up in the early ‘90’s by the founder and former chair of the CU Film Studies Program, Virgil Grillo (1938-1994), whose dedication and vision helped shepherd Film Studies from its modest beginnings in the 1970’s to an undergraduate degree program boasting some 600 majors.
