The Rutgers Centers for Global Advancement and International Affairs, one of the groups supporting me and my trip to Cannes, recently added this press release to their website.  A huge thank you to them and all their help.

Rutgers Student to Screen Film at Cannes Film Festival

Zack Morrison, a School of Arts and Sciences junior majoring in journalism and media studies, will show his film, “Don’t Make Me Sing,” at the Cannes Film Festival this May. The film about a man whose life is slowly turning into a musical comedy won best comedy at last year’s Campus MovieFest, the world’s largest student film festival. Thanks to a partnership with the Cannes Film Festival, Morrison’s film will be one of thirty from Campus MovieFest screened at Cannes.

“I am so honored to be selected to participate in the Cannes Film Festival this summer,” Morrison said. “This is an opportunity that most filmmakers spend their whole careers working towards, and to have it happen to me while being an undergraduate makes me feel truly blessed. I’m looking forward to not only showcasing my film before an international audience, but also the opportunity to learn about the ins and outs of the business side of filmmaking.”

The Centers for Global Advancement and International Affairs is supporting Morrison and his film as part of its mission to facilitate and encourage international engagement among Rutgers students. Morrison will spend participating in workshops and viewing films at the festival. For more information on his achievement and to see an interview, visit The Daily Targum.
