Rick Dillwood

“Between Friends and Family,” a film by Rick Dillwood (Media Studies / Digital Media Commons) premieres Nov. 10. at the Cucalorus Film Festival in Wilmington, NC. This is the faculty member’s first feature length documentary. Details on the film are at betweenfriendsandfamilymovie.com/

He completed the nine minute documentary short “How to Make a Heartbeat” in the spring of 2009 as a UNCG graduate student. The success of this film led to the creation of “Between Friends and Family.” He graduated from the MFA program in May of 2011 and he now teaches film here. He runs Wins the Race Productions, an independent film Production Company in Greensboro, and is currently working on a documentary web series that explores “the idea of queerness as it manifests in various cultural patterns and practices.” The web series is scheduled to launch in 2013.
