It was very nice to see what other students are up to, and what kind of abilities they all bring to the table.
Great choice of movies and was very organized. I would love to have more movie nights
I wish it hadn't been so hectic--there were many people who didn't have the opportunity to speak, myself among them. Though this may not have been intentional, I was somewhat frustrated by the fact that the majority of people being called on in the discussion afterwards were cis white boys... I was much more interested in hearing the perspective of other people, but I suppose that's how it goes sometimes. I was very disappointed, though, by the audience's reactions, but that generally can't be helped.
This was a privilege to attend and I thank the organizers and all involved for this event.
That being said, the quality of questions for our first candidate should have been considered much more than they seem to have been. Midway through the night, questions were collected from attendees that were more relevant to our city but it was a case of too little too late. Our incumbent Mayor had left the building by then.
I like to think that there was a learning curve involved that I hope is applied if we're fortunate to have a "next time."
Fun times & my daughter had fun as well :) Great job animation students & graduates!!!
Great to finally see a space for all film students to show their films, not just those selected for Take1 or Practicum.
