One More Award and Three More Film Festivals Recognize Worlds Apart

Worlds Apart - 2013

Worlds Apart, the second film produce by Cogswell College's unique Project X class, received the Best Animated Film Jury Award from the 2012 Asheville Cinema Festival. So far the film has garnered more than a dozen 'Best Animation' or '1st Place' awards in its 18 month run.

If you are in the Boulder City, Nevada area, you can catch Worlds Apart on the big screen during the Dam Short Film Festival on February 9 at the 10 AM screening. The Boulder Theatre is located at 1225 Arizona Street, Boulder City, NV 89005.

Also in February, Worlds Apart will screen at the Durango Film Festival which runs from February 27 to March 3. If you have an urge to explore or go skiing in gorgeous southwestern Colorado, stop by and check out this festival. Screening dates and times have not yet been released.

Finally in April, Phoenix area fans can watch the film during the Phoenix Film Festival which runs from April 4 to 11. What could be better than sunshine, mild temperatures and great films in Phoenix in April?

As Worlds Apart nears the end of its film festival run - and what a great run it's been - fans will have the chance to catch the film on YouTube in late spring 2013.

Currently the eagerly anticipated third film created by Project X is being readied for release in early spring 2013. Can't wait so see the magic our students under the direction of faculty, Michael Zachary Huber, have created this time.

About Project X

Project X is a one-of-a-kind, project-based class at Cogswell College that is run like a professional animation production studio using teams of skilled artists and sound designers. Students worked tirelessly for three semesters to produce a studio-quality short film. During production they are supported by a massive collaborative effort from faculty, staff, visiting artists, industry professionals and alumni.

"The hours are grueling, aesthetics standards are very demanding and we treat the artists like professionals and not students," said Michael Zachary Huber, Director of Project X. "This total immersion creates an environment conducive to quality, camaraderie and the highest production value. We believe it's the best way to learn."
