New City Film, "Film 50 2015 Chicago Screen Gems"

Modified: October 16, 2015

David and Debra Tolchinsky were featured in an article by New City Film, "Film 50 2015 Chicago Screen Gems." David is the Chair of the MFA in Writing for Screen and Stage program and the Chair of the Department of Radio/Television/Film, and Debra is the director of the MFA in Documentary Media. 

The piece highlights the exemplary work that both David and Debra have accomplished at Northwestern. "Debra’s established a unique MFA in Documentary Media, based on an interdisciplinary model set by David’s MFA in Writing for Screen+Stage program. 'It draws together fiction and nonfiction,' David says, 'how documentaries use narrative techniques and narratives use doc techniques, from ‘The Hurt Locker’ to ‘The Gatekeepers’ to ‘Stories We Tell.’ It’s attracting students from everywhere, hiring in all directions, sending students out in all directions.'”
