“Amásání” (The Grandmother), the short film written, directed, edited and produced by University of Arizona BFA 2017 Film & Television graduate Stacy Howard, has been selected to screen at the 2017 ImagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival. While Howard was interning at the UA Hanson Film Institute, its director, Vicky Westover, identified the film as a worthy entrant for the premier film festival and helped the young director submit it. The institute will sponsor Howard’s trip to Toronto in October.
