"For Francesca Andre the essence of filmmaking is to find a meaningful story and then try to do it justice. Worries about money are put in the back of her mind, she says, or the filmmaker would have never produced “Charcoal,” the short film bringing Andre a lot of attention. “Charcoal” has been screened with great success at a number of festivals, including the Silicon Valley African Film Festival in early fall and the Yonkers Film Festival last month in New York."

Sacred Heart University’s Film and Television Master’s Program (FTMA) has received a $20,000 grant from Newman’s Own Foundation to develop a series of one-minute films promoting inclusion and diversity. Newman’s Own Foundation is a nonprofit organization that actor Paul Newman formed in 2005 to sustain the legacy of his philanthropic work. “Paul Newman’s dream of changing the lives of those less fortunate can only be fulfilled through the dedication of committed organizations like yours,” wrote Kelly Giordano, managing director of Newman’s Own Foundation, in a letter to SHU.
