Temple FMA students create amazing films and we were so upset not to be able to celebrate them this past Spring in our annual Diamond Screen Film Festival or our BFA Master Class Showcase. Because of Covid-19 and the fact that our semester was truncated, many of the films that we would have enjoyed at the end of the semester could not be finished.
Quarantine is not slowing down Temple FMA Professor Rea Tajiri. Her incredible works are groundbreaking and inspirational with films that straddle documentary and art film genres and a way of finding new ways of storytelling that embrace the murky spaces of memory, history, and public consciousness.
This year at our REEL GIRLS event we were honored to welcome Alum and multiple Emmy-winner Rachel Sophia Stewart ('13) -- we sat down with her recently. Rachel is a Senior Editor at History Making Productions and her work generally entails editing their main series and features.
