2010 Founder's Note


In celebration of The Fusion Film Festival's 7th Year Anniversary, we would like to send our deepest congratulations and thanks to all members of the Fusion Team past and present for their incredible work and passion over the years. Artists in their own rights, Festival Team Members have always blessed us with an eclectic mix of expertise and interests that have kept Fusion fresh and alive, and we would like to send tribute to our Fusion Team Members for their endless energy and creativity.

In addition, we would like to send our gratitude to our supporters at Tisch who have fostered and encouraged our dreams for Fusion since its conception in 2003 and continue to do so in its 7th year in 2010. We would like to honor Fusion's Faculty Advisor Susan Sandler, as it is with her enthusiasm and dedication that Fusion has had the opportunity to grow over the past 7 years into a Festival and Community of creativity, integrity, and commitment to the fine work of both student and industry talents.

With much pride and anticipation we have watched Fusion grow over the past 7 years from the east coasts, west coasts, across the Atlantic, and around the world. Each year we have had our expectations exceeded and marvel at the growth of Fusion, a Festival we deeply support, respect, and love.

Congratulations Fusion on 7 Years! And a grand toast to many many more!

From Founders Gina Abatemarco (NYU Tisch '03) and Emma Heald (NYU Tisch '04)
