April Fan Announced as Semi Finalist at This Year’s 44th Student Academy Awards

Class of 2016 graduate April Fan shows us that hard work can pay off. Last week, she announced that her film ONE WAY HOME is a semi finalist in the 44th Annual Student Academy Awards. April recently screened her film at the Reel Abilities Film Festival and at the Asia Society this past May.

“ONE WAY HOME: What is the cost of a free government-sponsored education? Tibetan children, Tashi and YuJu were chosen to study in Mainland China joining thousands of Tibetan kids in the boarding schools for only Tibetans. These boarding schools prepare them to return to Tibet as China’s new elite, but the “first class” education comes with a deep loss of identity, language and culture.”

Her film was also an official selection at Hollyshorts Film Festival and Docutah 2017.

Good luck April! We will be rooting for you!
