Glen Cove junior Julia Farley's animated film “Pretty” placed first at the LIU Post Student Film Festival on April 20.

According to media communications teacher Christopher Barry, the director of LIU’s TV production department and chair of LIU’s communications school, both asked if Julia's piece was going to be shown at any other festivals. They agreed that it "needs to be shown and needs to be seen."

Additionally, both suggested that it should be submitted to the Student Academy Awards, which is the student version of the Oscars. The director said to everyone in the room at the festival that, "Rarely, if ever, do we see a piece this professional at this level.”

Barry said he was bursting with pride that Julia is his student and feels fortunate to have another year to work with her.
