DGA crowns student winners

Stein adds kudo to 'Crossing's' total; McDonald, Kim, Lois also get nods

The DGA East has announced the winners of its sixth annual DGA East Coast Student Filmmakers Awards. Winners of the kudos, which honor minority and women filmmakers from East Coast film schools, each receive $2,500. This year Columbia U. students nabbed three of the four awards.

Alison McDonald (Columbia) was named best African-American student filmmaker for “The Life and Times of Little Jimmy B”; Ted Kim (Columbia) took best Asian-American student filmmaker for “The Uncertainty Principle”; the best Latino student filmmaker nod went to Cristina Lois (School of Visual Arts) for “Andurina”; and Joan Stein (Columbia) was named best woman student filmmaker for “One Day Crossing.”

Columbia swept the awards in 1998, taking all four kudos.

Big winner

Stein’s “One Day Crossing” has racked up the awards this year, taking the gold medal at the 27th annual Student Academy Awards for best narrative film, the student film award from the DGA West and the best director for a student short award from the National Board of Film.

The winning pics will be screened Oct. 18 at 6:30 p.m. at the DGA’s New York Theater at 110 W. 57th St.
