UArts and UArtists continued to make news this winter, from students being featured in major publications and a faculty member’s film being accepted to Sundance for the second year in a row.
Here are some stories you might have missed.
For the second year in a row, a work by UArts Film Program Director Michael Attie has been accepted to Sundance Film Festival. This year, Attie and his co-directors, Meghan O’Hara and Rodrigo Ojeda-Beck, submitted The Field Trip, a short nonfiction film about a group of fifth-graders who learn what it takes to get ahead in the modern U.S. workplace.
Kara Cannella ’21 (Dance) was interviewed by both the Dallas Observer and Dance Magazine for her popular TikTok choreography. “I try to make something creative and different,” she said, “and also simple and easy, so that everyone can do it.”
Teen Vogue featured Marionia Jones ’23 (Dance) about what it’s like to attend college virtually and how she prepared for her finals last semester. You might even see a few more familiar faces!
