  3. The UT RTF department annually presents a showcase of student work, some of which is presented in this video, with interviews of the filmmakers. Representing the rich diversity of our filmmakers' styles and interests, many RTF filmmakers earn recognition with the films included in the showcase. In 2013, three of the showcase films went on to win regional Student Academy Awards, and one of them, Brian Schwarz's OL' DADDY, clinched the national Student Academy Award in the narrative category. The accolades for this year's films include Elizabeth Chatelain's MY SISTER SARAH, which won the prestigious 2013 International Documentary Association student film award and was a finalist for the Student Academy Awards. Annie Silverstein's drama SKUNK won first place out of 1631 student films worldwide to be accepted to the international 2014 Cannes Film Festival, Cinéfondation section and is currently a finalist for a BAFTA-LA student filmmaker award. Meanwhile, the Texas Governor's office recognized John Spottswood Moore’s personal documentary ONCE AGAIN with the Barbara Jordan Media Award.

  5. Near the end of WWII, the vicious SS recruited every able man to fight on the front lines in an attempt to push back the allies and further eradicate the Jews. When Erich, a peaceful man and father of two, is recruited, tragic circumstances befall him and he is ordered to kill two Jewish children. Now he must decide between murdering the children or aiding in their escape, knowing that doing so will result in his own death. The short is Jamesʼs first attempt at a war drama, and the idea stemmed loosely from an experience his great uncle had while in captivity at Kistarcsa, Hungary.

    Directed by James Moore
