Patricia Zimmermann was recently named the recipient of the Park School Faculty Writing Award for her essay, "Humanist and Poetic Activism: The Rob Flaherty Film Seminar in the 1950s."

Zimmerman, professor of screen studies and Codirector of the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival, was selected unanimously by a judging panel consisting of Park School faculty whose professional expertise represent scholarly writing, journalism, and screen/scriptwriting.

According to the judges, Zimmermann's work "represents a culmination of multiple years of solid scholarship and examines an area of cinema history that gave birth to the early independent film festivals that has rarely been explored."

The essay was published by University of St. Andrews Press (2012).


Seniors Joseph Killeen and Ethan Burnette are this year's recipients of the Park School Student Writing Award.

A panel of Park School faculty whose professional expertise represent scholarly writing, journalism, and screen/scriptwriting reviewed the nominations and selected the winners.

The committee unanimously agreed to split the award between Killeen, author of the short script, LOVESICK, and Burnette, author of a full-length screenplay, SYNAPSE.

Cathy Lee Crane, associate professor in the Department of Media Arts, Sciences and Studies, was named a 2013 Guggenheim Fellow in Film/Video.

John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation has awarded fellowships to a diverse group of 175 scholars, artists, and scientists. Appointed on the basis of prior achievement and exceptional promise, the successful candidates were chosen from a group of almost 3,000 applicants.

The Guggenheim Fellowship will support Crane's upcoming project -- a production of a speculative history on how the United States entered World War I as told through the story of one girl's adoption by a butcher in 1917.

Students of Ithaca College will be invited to participate in producing scenes of this film in the Park School soundstage as part of a Cinema Production Practicum course offered in the SP14 semester. If you are interested in enrolling in that class, please contact Professor Crane directly at to attend an informational session in FA13.
