Every year, Dodge College puts on the Leo Freedman Foundation First Cut Screenings to show off our top films from the previous year.
This year, we are expanding our reach, with screenings in Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, and Orange, to showcase these wonderful films to industry professionals, media, alumni, prospective students, and parents.
This year, the following films will screen:

Gardeners of the Forest (dirs. Ceylan Carhoglu ’16, Nicole Jordan-Webber’16) – For generations, Laos was known as the Land of a Million Elephants but, as of 2016, there are fewer than 600 elephants left in the wild. Student Academy Award Finalist – Documentary Category
