April 29, 2011
Jeremy Alliger ’75 has been selected to judge the newly created Glovebox Short Film and Animation Festival. Glovebox is a Boston-based collective of seasoned artists and organizers dedicated to assisting emerging filmmakers, photographers, fine artists, sculptors, and musicians. Winning submissions to the Glovebox Short Film and Animation Festival will be presented and screened on Saturday (June 11) at the Somerville Theatre.
More than 20 years ago, Alliger founded Dance Umbrella, an organization that brought notable modern dance performers to Boston, including bringing Bill T. Jones to perform at Emerson’s Cutler Majestic Theatre. Alliger is executive producer of Alliger Arts, which produces touring projects and festivals such as Coming up for Air: An AutoJAZZography, an award-winning solo jazz musical, as well as GIMP, an internationally known dance production that features four trained dancers and four performers who have physical disabilities.
Alliger received an Alumni Achievement Award in 1992 from the College. He also served as Chair of the Boston Cultural Council, Panel Chair at the National Endowment for the Arts, and artistic advisor for the MacArthur and Guggenheim Foundations.
