DIRECTORS GUILD TO HOST PANEL OF MOST PROMISING STUDENT FILMMAKERS

 NEW YORK, April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Clint Eastwood and Jonathan Demme may be considered two of the best directors in recent years, but who will be the top directors of the future?
 Seven definite contenders -- selected as the top young student filmmakers by the film schools of New York University and Columbia -- will appear on Tuesday, May 4, before a panel of Directors Guild of America (DGA) filmmakers to show their work and participate in a discussion with DGA members. Hosting the event will be award-winning director Joan Micklin Silver, whose credits include "Crossing Delancy."
 The up and coming student filmmakers selected by New York University are: Helena Besfamilny, Julie Aaron, Andrew Peterson and Jane A. Howell. Young filmmakers chosen by Columbia University are: Alexandra Sichel, Stephen James and Allisia Collins.
 Films to be screened at the Tuesday night session are "Brighton Blues" by Besfamilny, "Amnesia" by Sichel, "The Passionate Eye" by Aaron, "The Make" by James, "No Thanks Not Sure Yes Please," by Peterson, "Mrs. Ruby's House" by Collins and "A Tail of Two Grackles" by Howell.
 Over the last few decades, many of the graduates of the film programs of NYU and Columbia have emerged as some of today's liveliest and most provocative directors.
 The DGA says the meeting with the young directors will serve as a "salute" to this new generation of filmmakers. It will also "serve as a valuable link to the next generation of filmmakers," said Eastern Area Secretary Alan Gordon.
 The event is open to DGA members.
