Spartans Score at 2012 Media Arts Festival

The CSU Media Arts Festival gives talented students an opportunity to present their work for critical review by professors and industry leaders.

SJSU’s Television, Radio, Film and Theatre Arts students excelled at the 2012 CSU Media Arts Festival. The event gives talented students studying film, video and interactive media within the 23-campus California State University system an opportunity to present their work for critical review.

Distinguished professors and industry leaders choose the student finalists and winners in the film, video, and interactive media competition, and all finalist works are screened during the festival. Cash prizes and the prestigious Rosebud Award are given to the winning student entries. This year’s Rosebud Award Winners include Spartan Animation/Illustration student Michelle Ikemoto for her work on a piece depicting Japanese American internment during World War II.
