Grace Foundation taps winners

The film advisory panel of the Princess Grace Foundation-USA voted on its 1993 student film winners Monday after deliberating in Manhattan.

Recipients of the grants will be announced at the Nov. 4 awards ceremony in Gotham.

Supervised by Arts Advisory Board chairman Barbara Horgan, the five-member panel viewed submissions from students repping more than 60 film schools in the country, narrowing the list to five winners. Each school may select one undergrad and one graduate student, and the panel reviews filmmakers’ proposals and samples of their work.

Winners receive a flexible award, ranging up to about $ 8,000, to fund the production of a thesis project. Submissions include animation, narrative, experimental and documentary works.

Panel member Virgil Grillo noted that although some schools put forward students on the basis of demonstrating professionalism, the panel is more sensitive to innovation and originality.

Named for the late film actress and Princess of Monaco, Foundation-USA was set up in 1982 and also presents annual awards in the fields of dance and theater.

On the film panel are Manhattan-based filmmaker William Greaves; director of film studies at U. of Colorado at Boulder, Virgil Grillo; Pacific Film Archives associate programmer Kathy Geritz; Philadelphia’s Intl. House’s film program head, Linda Blackaby; and Whitney Museum film & video curator John Hanhardt.
