A Cal State San Marcos film student was recently named as a finalist for the San Diego Filmmakers Scholarship. This scholarship is designed to give middle school, high school, and collegiate filmmakers the funds and opportunity to bring a project to life. Alhijaz Althagafi was among the four final young filmmakers in consideration for the top honor. All applicants had their schedules, budgets, and project proposals already outlined. “As we grow and promote the many professionals of our area’s production community, it is appropriate that we also mentor the next generation of professionals,” said Greg Lefevre, San Diego Filmmakers Scholarship Coordinator.
This was the first annual awarding of the scholarship, and the collegiate winner was Robert Rukavina, a student at Palomar College. San Diego Filmmakers holds open sessions every month with industry guest speakers and provides collaborative opportunities. Volunteers are always welcome.
