McMillion, MFA ’13, named 25 New Faces of Independent Film

July 22, 2013

Filmmaker Magazine named Visual and Media Arts alumna Elaine McMillion among the 25 New Faces of Independent Film.

McMillion, whose documentaries cover a variety of topics—from police brutality to New Orleans’ Lower Night Ward post–Hurricane Katrina, told Filmmaker Magazine, “I think the tools I acquired as a journalist prepared me for most of the experiences I have encountered. You have to be on your toes, you have to be flexible, and you have to be dedicated.”

Her film project Hollow, which she began in 2011, branched out into an interactive documentary experience.
