4th Annual CUE Summer Party!CUE 2010 Summer Party
CUFF Los Angeles Film Festival and Party - June 10
CUFF Alumni Panel - TBC
You MUST RSVP to attend!

Please note:  The screening and party are SOLD OUT as of June 8, 2010!

CUE and Columbia are taking it up a notch this year and hosting the festival at CAA! The New York City portion of the festival had one of its most successful years to date, with packed theaters, ground-breaking films and, of course, fabulous parties.

We hope you can all attend the upcoming events in Los Angeles to support this years crop of talented filmmakers and mingle with other CUE members over delish hors d'oeuvres and a wide open bar.

The big days are June 9th and 10th, and the events consist of a panel discussion with industry agents and managers, a screening of the award-winning Faculty Select films and a grand reception to follow.

It's a great opportunity to reconnect with old friends, make new ones and network with industry execs. And afterwards, head over to X-Bar with fellow Columbia alumni for an informal after-party with an A-list mixologist who's sure to keep your taste buds tingling long into the night!

CUE Mixer PixThanks again to everyone who made our 2009 events a success. Hope everyone is having a good and productive spring! Here at CUE we've been busy working with the school and planning for our 4th year of alumni events in 2010.

We've confirmed dates for the 2010 CU Film Festival Los Angeles: June 9-11. We'll be having a reception co-sponsored with the university-wide Columbia Alumni Associaion after screening the 2010 faculty selects one night, and are planning a new alumni panel with the school as well. We'll also be at a new venue this year... Creative Artists Agency!

Following is a letter and invitation to the upcoming MFA Actors Showcases, which will be Monday, May 4, 2009 and include a reception open to CUE members and other Columbia alumni working in entertainment. Click here for the full invite and RSVP information...

To My Fellow SoA Alumni,

As a graduate of the Columbia University School of the Arts MFA Acting Program, I have been fortunate enough to have had many extraordinary opportunities to practice the craft for which I was trained. Recently, I have returned to Columbia to help develop the professional preparation of the current third-year Acting class and to work with my fellow alumni to provide further opportunities in this endeavor.

As many of you know, the 2009 MFA Los Angeles Actors Showcase represents a critical juncture in the professional lives of these young artists.
