Things To Do In Denver When You’re Dead“), writer/director Paul
Schrader (“Taxi Driver,” “Light Sleeper“) and documentarians Joe
Berlinger & Bruce Sinofsky (“Brothers Keeper,” “Paradise Lost“) on hand
to present the awards. Dustys are given to students in the graduating
class of the film department, and are awarded in eleven categories,
including Film, Alternative Cinema, Screenwriting and Editing. In a
prepared statement, Reeves Lehmann, chair of the Film, Video and
Animation Department at SVA said, “The fact that the industry comes in
droves for this special event signals a thirst for new talent.”
