May 08, 2024

The Fusion Film Festival, NYU Tisch School of the Arts’ student-run film festival celebrating women and nonbinary creators in film, TV and new media, will screen new works and host panels on showrunning, nonfiction filmmaking, and making work with social impact from April 10-13 at the Tisch School of the Arts, 721 Broadway in New York City. The festival opens with an invitation-only luncheon April 10 honoring Daniela Taplin Lundberg, founder of Stay Gold Features, with the 2024 Fusion Industry Visionary Award. Over the next three days, the festival will screen two debut features—Joanna Arnow’s The Feeling That the Time for Doing Something Has Passed and Tisch alum Annie Baker’s Janet Planet—before concluding with the screenings of finalists and an awards presentation. For 22 years, the Fusion Film Festival has focused on the women who are thriving in all corners of film and television. “The festival inspires students—nonbinary, female, or otherwise—to be fearless in pursuing the stories that matter and to listen to diverse points of view,” says Shreeya Jayabharathi, another of the festival’s three co-directors.
