Carson Film enjoys success on film festival circuit

Lincoln, Neb.--The most recent film in the Carson School Film Series, "The Healing of Harman," has enjoyed success with several awards and entry into several film festivals since its premiere last fall in Lincoln and Los Angeles.

“I had more than 20 mentees, including three students that I promoted to producers, and I would tell them ‘Awards are never the goal, but they get your work seen, which leads to other work,’” said Julie Uribe, a lecturer in the Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film who served as executive producer and co-wrote the screenplay.
