The Academy Awards for the world's up-and-coming filmmakers have been announced.
A total of 16 students from colleges in the U.S. and abroad have been named winners of Student Academy Awards by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
Each honoree will be brought to Los Angeles for a week of industry activites culminating in the June 8 awards ceremony at the Academy's Beverly Hills headquarters. (Free tickets are available but must be acquired in advance.)
