BRIDGES NOD TO MARRIOTT

Graduate student filmmaker Marc Marriott has been awarded the $25,000 James Bridges Award in Film Directing at UCLA’s School of Film and Television. The grant will go toward the production of his MFA thesis film, “The Snow Child”

The award – the largest student filmmaker grant in the U.S. – is presented each year by the Bridges/Larson Foundation to an MFA thesis directing student “who best embodies a commitment toward the integration of film with the techniques of theater.”

Director James Bridges is best known for his films “The China Syndrome” and “Urban Cowboy.”

Marriott’s first student film, “Short Order” won the 1995 Prix Canal Plus at the Henri Langlois Film Festival in Poitiers, France. The film was licensed for domestic pay TV by the Sundance Channel.
