Jackie Prata '20 recognized at international film festival

Jackie Prata '20 was recognized as a finalist in the Manhattan International Film Festival (MIFF). The festival was held at the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in NYC and hosted by the World Youth Alliance (WYA) on March 25.

MIFF recognized ten films from Mexico, UK, The Philippines, The Netherlands, and the USA. Jackie’s documentary, "Bittersweet," was included as one of the ten finalists.

Jackie was awarded a certificate and took a picture with Lord Pomperada, the President of World Youth Alliance and H.E. Ambassador Lily Hsu.

The film finalists were incredible productions by accomplished filmmakers from around the world. Jackie was clearly the youngest filmmaker there. 

Congratulations, Jackie, on this prestigious recognition!
