New Yorkers this is for you. This year, the Columbia University Film Festival celebrates its 25th anniversary with a week-long festival of screenings and dramatic readings. The fest, which is co-presented by the Columbia University School of the Arts Film Program and Film Society of Lincoln Center, opens at Alice Tully Hall on May 4, 2012 with a program highlighting early works of Columbia grads.

In the opening night screening program are excerpts from early works of Cholodenko, Perice, James Mangold, Tanya Wexler, and others, plus Greg Mottola's 1989 “Swingin’ in the Painter’s Room” (1989) and Adam Davidson's 1989 “The Lunch Date.” More screenings are listed at the CUFF website here.

Ira Deutchman, Chair of the Columbia University School of the Arts Film Program stated:

"The 25th anniversary of the Festival is an opportunity to take a step back and marvel at the amazing body of work that has been presented by our students over the years. We are very pleased that the Film Society is co-presenting the festival with us this year. They are not only providing us a prestigious platform, but also validation of the quality of the work. It is an acknowledgement that there is no other film festival anywhere that showcases student work with such accomplishment, ambition and diversity."

This year, the Andrew Sarris Award --honoring outstanding service and artistic achievement on the part of distinguished Film Program alumni-- will go to scripter Malia Scotch Marmo ("Hook").  The festival will also celebrate the success of Columbia's women filmmakers with a panel: participants are Lisa Cholodenko, Nicole Holofcener, Larysa Kondracki and Kimberly Peirce.
