7 Hillz Co-Founder and Co-Director Breion Moses said, “It is our vision to exceed expectations through the lens and set trends within the film industry. We must do more to highlight the great works of FAMUANS (alumni and current students).”
“This event is the first of its kind in the State of Florida and on the campus of Florida A&M University,” Moses said. “We are doing our part to feature alumni veteran filmmakers, keynote speakers, panel discussions and introductions to new industry filmmakers. For example, a scholarship will be awarded to a deserving student. We believe this is a great opportunity and cause, not just for the applicant themselves, but so the award winner will be able to inspire future generations just as we strive to."
