LOS ANGELES - Kodak and the University Film and Video Foundation (UFVF) have announced the recipients of the 2014 KODAK Student Scholarship Awards and KODAK Student Cinematography Scholarship Awards. The presentation was made Saturday night during the annual banquet and awards ceremony at the University Film and Video Association (UFVA) Conference, which was held last week at Montana State University. Kodak's annual global competition is designed to recognize emerging talent that demonstrates superior filmmaking skills and creativity.

Selected by a panel of judges led by award-winning cinematographer John Bailey, ASC, this year's winners represent film schools in Hungary, Russia, Singapore, and the United States.

The KODAK Student Scholarship Program Award winners are:

  • Gold Award ($5,000 tuition scholarship award and $5,000 KODAK Motion Picture product grant) - Timothy Yeung from New York University's (NYU) Tisch School of the Arts Asia in Singapore for his film 90 Days. Yeung wrote, directed and produced the drama.
  • Silver Award ($4,000 tuition scholarship award and $4,000 KODAK Motion Picture product grant) - Dustin Brown from Santa Monica College in California for Solidarity. Brown was writer, director, producer and editor of his narrative.
  • Bronze Award ($3,000 tuition scholarship award and $3,000 KODAK Motion Picture product grant) - Anton Moiseenko from the Russian State University of Cinematography (VGIK) in Russia for his piece Experience of the Celestial Bodies. Moiseenko wrote and directed the documentary.

The KODAK Student Cinematography Scholarship Award winners are:

  • First Place ($4,000 tuition scholarship award and $5,000 KODAK Motion Picture product grant) - Balaji Manohar, also from Tisch Asia, for his cinematography on Little Master.
  • Honorable Mention ($1,000 tuition scholarship award and $3,000 KODAK Motion Picture product grant) - Balász István Balász from the University of Theatre and Film Arts in Hungary for his visuals on House.

Kodak partners with the University Film and Video Foundation to make this program possible. The UFVF is a not-for-profit organization that engages in and promotes worldwide education, research, innovation, and charitable activities in the arts and sciences of moving images and aural communication.

Accredited film schools around the world nominated up to two students for consideration for the KODAK Student Scholarship, and one cinematography student for the KODAK Student Cinematography Scholarship. The cinematography student nominee could also be nominated for the KODAK Student Scholarship Award. They were judged on a combination of past work, faculty recommendations, and academic achievement. Judging took place in July.

In addition to Bailey, the entries were judged by Melinda Levin, a professor at the University of North Texas and president of the UFVF, and Kodak's Lorette Bayle, who is also an award-winning filmmaker.

Kodak introduced its worldwide film school program in 1991. Through the years, the program has grown to include a wide range of initiatives to help both students and educators enrich the development of their skills in the art and craft of filmmaking.
