Congratulations to the Winners of the 6th Annual Léman Film Festival

February 11, 2022

The Fine Arts department debuted their 2022 season with the 6th Annual Leman Film Festival.  28 films were submitted, 21 were passed to the judges, and 12 were screened as the winning and nominated films in 9 categories.  This year, there were six judges on the panel, all professionals in the film industry: Vidushi Chadha, Maren Lavelle, Kurt Leitner, Jeffrey Santoro, Nick Santoro, and Raghav Puri.  Vidushi Chadha served as the keynote speaker and spoke about the theme of courage and how that was present not only in the films themselves but in the process of making the films.
