Feldman lands Firstenberg prize


AFI presented the first Jean Picker Firstenberg Award to its Directing Workshop for Women participant Rebecca Feldman. Initiated by DWW alumna Nancy Malone, the Jean Picker Firstenberg Award is a tribute to AFI's outgoing CEO and president who has served AFI for over 27 years. Rebecca Feldman was selected by a committee based on the quality of her final project, a short film titled " My First Time Driving." AFI's DWW is currently accepting applications for its 2008 cycle. It will hold an informational open house on Nov. 12.
