Student behind film camera

Jacob Wishnek '15

In the spring of 2014, Film Club President Jacob took the initiative to create and lead Charlotte's first Student Film Festival, held in the Gorelick Family Theater on Cannon Campus. The idea for a student film festival came to Jacob after he attended the UNCSA Filmmaking Summer Intensive.
