Manhattan Film Festival 2011: 'Made Off' wins top student film prize

"Made Off" was named the winner of Best Student Film at the 2011 Manhattan Film Festival. Made Off was one of only 132 films selected for screening from thousands of submissions from around the world. Each summer, the prestigious festival showcases films by independent filmmakers to help them find an audience for their talent and pursue a career in filmmaking.

"Made Off" recounts the story of the father of an affluent New York City family swindled by Bernie Madoff, who uses his youngest daughter to pull off his own white-collar crime. The drama is the collaborative effort of Northwestern University students, Anthony Del Gigante as director and producer, and Rachel Lauren Goldman as writer and producer. Made Off stars Gerard Christopher from the international series, The Adventures of Superboy, as well as Jelena Mrdja from the film Here and There (2009 TriBeCa Film Festival winner), and Sofia Singer, making her acting debut.
