Jun. 5, 2019

The original film My Name is Art - directed and edited by CFA communications coordinator Shahab Zargari - has been selected to screen as part of Amazon's inaugural All Voices Film Festival, a digital festival celebrating underrepresented communities. The film features production, post-production, and musical talents of additional UNLV staff, faculty, students, and alumni. The festival features shorts from filmmakers in the U.S. from all backgrounds, where the creator or content represents the diversity of our world. 

"My Name is Art" also recently won Best Narrative Short at the Silver State Film Festival and a Bronze Hattie award at the Anaheim Film Festival.

After watching the short, you may stream the score on Spotify, Apple Music, or Bandcamp (embed below):
