Testimonials

Josh Murphy, SVP of Development, PILGRIM STUDIOS

Vicky and the Hanson Film Institute were instrumental in helping me start a career in the entertainment industry. Their grant program, Pitch Fest and on-going speaker series are all incredible opportunities for UA students to meet and build relationships with working industry professionals. I love going back to the UofA and participating in Hanson events whenever I can!”

The Hanson Film Institute has propelled my film career greatly, from my college years to where I am now. I was lucky enough, as a young filmmaker, to receive assistance on my project from the development stage to the film festival circuit. The film festival success of BLOODLINES, and the professional connections I’ve made couldn’t have been possible without the mentorship from the Institute. I would highly recommend any young, aspiring filmmaker to seize every opportunity presented from The Hanson Film Institute to help forward their career.”
