Student Award Showcase

Winners of the Grillo and Goldfarb Awards

Student Award Showcase
The 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 up to $17,000, combined Goldfarb and Grillo funds, 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 in-class student votes and 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. 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. Goldfarb awards are given by the Goldfarb Foundation and Peter Goldfarb, President.
(Screening made possible by ACE fees.)
