Media Arts student Oscar Garcia is the first CCA student to present a short film in the San Francisco Festival of Short Films (a.k.a. SF Shorts), a festival organized by CCA Graphic Design faculty member James Kenney and award-winning Graphic Design alum Michael Coyne.
Garcia's Three Mother Fucking Amsterdams—one of only 49 programmed films—was selected from more than 1,100 international entries for this year's third annual event. The 12-minute short documentary interview film is about a gay American art student in Paris who, after drinking three enormous beers, is harassed by his classmates.
SF Shorts runs August 6–9 in several San Francisco movie theaters. Now in its third year, the festival is organized by Kenney. This year's judges include Pixar animator Bret Parker, Jeff Goodby (Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, a San Francisco-based advertising agency), and Nikki Silva (NPR's The Kitchen Sisters).
