FAIRFIELD, Conn. – Professors Justin Liberman and Damon Maulucci of Sacred Heart University’s film and television master’s program (FTMA) have been named to Connecticut Magazine’s annual 40 Under 40 list for 2015. The two were applauded for their professional accomplishments, including Maulucci’ s critically acclaimed feature film Detonator and Liberman’s upcoming feature Mary Joe, as well as for successfully founding the FTMA program at Sacred Heart’s Stamford Graduate Center.

“2015 will continue to be an exciting year. Justin and I both have films we’re looking to shoot in the state, and we are thrilled to be recognized for our work and the success of the FTMA program,” Maulucci says.

Adds Liberman, “This is a nice honor, and I hope it helps bring exposure to the FTMA program. We are really trying to build a film tradition here at SHU, and the more we garner recognition for our work—alongside our students’ work—the more the tradition grows. 2015 is going to be an important and exciting year for our program. We continue to grow and expand and look forward to organizing an incredible second annual FTMA Film Festival in September.”
