Marcie Bloom, former co-president of Sony Pictures Classics and partner of Orion Classics, announced Tuesday the formation of The Marcie Bloom Fellowship in Film, a New York-based mentoring program designed to introduce up to four college seniors and recent graduates to the film industry. For the first year of the fellowship, participating colleges will be Wesleyan University, Columbia University and The New School. "I always dreamt of a career where I would have a reason to be around talented, creative people without being just a 'groupie,'." said Bloom in a statement. "I see this as a way of 'giving back' to a community which has been extremely kind and generous to me, and supportive of me for a long time." [Peter Knegt]
