Robert Sickels, professor of film and media studies, reports that his documentary short, "Sterling Hallard Bright Drake", is screening at the St. Louis International Film Festival, which is an Academy Award qualifying festival. The documentary short was made by Sickels and Zack Ellenbogen ’12; their collaboration was supported by a Perry Grant. It recently played at the SNOB Film Festival in Concord, NH, and at the Northwest Filmmakers’ Festival at Whitsell Auditorium at the Portland Art Museum. Ellenbogen attended the Portland screening and hosted a Q&A after the film; Sickels will do the same in St. Louis, where the film will screen at the 440-seat Tivoli Theatre as part of the Doc Shorts: Longevity program.
