Two winners of the first ever Colin Higgins Ambassador Scholarship recipients.  This year’s winners are slated to participate in The American Pavilion’s Worldwide Student Program at the prestigious Cannes International Film Festival. This recently announced scholarship for LGBTQ students will celebrate its inaugural year honoring: Alex McFry — an activist & prolific indie filmmaker (he’s produced and directed four short films: “Viola,” “The Same Blue,” “Miss Fortune”), also including his short film “Heads Up,” which is being featured in this years emerging filmmaker showcases and transgender film student and activist Julie Tjalas. Press release included below for your coverage inclusion. Many thanks for your consideration as always!

Information about our scholarship winners:

Alex McFry is a gifted filmmaker from a small-town in Alabama without an arts program to guide his passion for filmmaking and where attending college was a tough financial road. During undergrad at Jacksonville State University, he took a Sociology & Sexuality course which informed his decision to pursue his Masters Degree now at Florida State University. An active member of PFLAG since coming out in High School, his short film “Heads Up,” is loosely based on his own journey and will make its Cannes debut on the croisette as a part of the American Pavilion’s Emerging Filmmaker Showcase this year. 

Julie Tjalas, who grew up in a Jehovah’s Witness household, was faced with extraordinary prejudice as a bisexual transgender youth which had kept her closeted for quite some time.  Currently at Arizona State University she is pursuing her degree in film and is the president of Transfam, an advocacy club on campus.  With the mindset to make a change for the better, she is working on a "preferred name policy" at ASU, to help other transgender students.

Best,

The American Pavilion Announces the Recipients of the Colin Higgins Ambassador Scholarship at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival 

 LGBTQ Humanitarian Foundation Partners with The American Pavilion to Foster Inclusive Leadership and Empowerment

Los Angeles, CA (May XX, 2019) — The American Pavilion, www.ampav.com, celebrating 31 years as the epicenter of American hospitality and communication at the Cannes International Film Festival, is thrilled to announce the first ever Colin Higgins Ambassador Scholarship recipients.  This year’s winners are slated to participate in The American Pavilion’s Worldwide Student Program at the prestigious Cannes International Film Festival which was announced today by Julie Sisk, The American Pavilion founder/director and a champion for an inclusive film world. This recently announced scholarship for LGBTQ students will celebrate its inaugural year honoring two gifted and hardworking trailblazers: Alex McFry and Julie Tjalas.

Alex McFry is a gifted filmmaker from a small-town in Alabama without an arts program to guide his passion for filmmaking and where attending college was a tough financial road. During undergrad at Jacksonville State University, he took a Sociology & Sexuality course which informed his decision to pursue his Masters Degree now at Florida State University. An active member of PFLAG since coming out in High School, his short film “Heads Up,” is loosely based on his own journey and will make its Cannes debut on the croisette as a part of the American Pavilion’s Emerging Filmmaker Showcase this year. 

Julie Tjalas, who grew up in a Jehovah’s Witness household, was faced with extraordinary prejudice as a bisexual transgender youth which had kept her closeted for quite some time.  Currently at Arizona State University she is pursuing her degree in film and is the president of Transfam, an advocacy club on campus.  With the mindset to make a change for the better, she is working on a "preferred name policy" at ASU, to help other transgender students.

“These two students are both incredible leaders already, and exemplary examples of perseverance and grace in the face of adversity, it is an honor to welcome them both as the first two Colin Higgins Foundation Ambassadors to the American Pavilion this year,” stated Michael Bremer, AmPav’s Director of Student Programs.

The Colin Higgins Foundation is dedicated to supporting LGBTQ youth in underserved communities and the programs and organizations that foster and build their leadership and empowerment. In addition to their grant making activities, the Foundation annually awards the Colin Higgins Youth Courage Awards for bravery in the face of discrimination, intolerance and bigotry based on sexual orientation and/or gender. Since 1993, the Foundation has awarded over 341 grants totaling over three million dollars to further the humanitarian vision of its founder, filmmaker, Colin Higgins.

Colin Higgins wrote and produced the beloved cult classic, Harold and Maude.  He also wrote Silver Streak, wrote and directed Foul Play, 9 to 5 and Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.  He passed away from HIV related illnesses in 1988.

Since 1989, The American Pavilion has been the de facto hospitality and communications hub for American independents at the Cannes Film Festival, which takes place over two weeks every May in the beautiful city of Cannes on the French Riviera.  Alongside unparalleled programming and other events hosted by The American 

Pavilion, AmPav’s Worldwide Student Programhosts 200 students each year from schools all over the world who come to Cannes as part of the only student program officially recognized and sanctioned by the festival.   

Alumni from The American Pavilion’sprograms include not only prominent directors such as Jeff Nichols and Ryan Coogler, but also successful executives now working at entertainement  companies such firms as CAA, Netflix, CBS, Magnolia Pictures, andFilmNation Entertainment, all of whom credit AmPav’s Worldwide Student Program as an educational game changer.  You can read more about AmPav's various student programs here, and see some recent student testimonials in this brief video.

For some students, however, the program fee to participate, which includes housing and festival accreditation, is out of reach.  The Colin Higgins Ambassador Scholarship aims to level the playing field by providing financial assistance to LGBTQ students who would otherwise be unable to experience this unique exclusive, industry-only opportunity.
