Best of Festival Award for Student Documentary

Sam Smartt and Chris Zaluski (co-directors), students in The Documentary Film Program program, won the
Best of Festival Award for Student Documentary from the Broadcast Education Association.

Wagonmasters, is a documentary which offers glimpses into the lives of wagon enthusiasts, and tells the story of the station wagon as it represents a changing America over the last one hundred years. The car that was once the quintessential image of the American Dream is all but dead – at least for most people.

The film has also been nominated for a College Television Award (a student Emmy) in a competition sponsored by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Foundation.  The winner will be determined at an awards ceremony in Los Angeles later this month.
