Vallejo Community Access Televisions Announces the 2012 Presentation of the Ursula Film Festival Awards!
Between the years 1998 and 2006 Ursula Morgan Kane along with a few more enthusiastic residents were key factors in helping initiate the existence of our public access television station in Vallejo. Unfortunately, Ursula died a few days before the station went on air in 2006. This award film festival was named in her honor, as Vallejo Community Access Television’s way of expressing our gratitude for all her efforts.
On September 21, 2012 VCAT held its first annual Ursula Awards Film Festival fundraiser. We would like to give our utmost appreciation to our Co-Emcees Dr. Ramona Bishop, (VCUSD Superintendent) and Tom Bartee, (District Director, Office of Assembly member Mike Allen) for the superb job they did. Also to all of the award presenters, sponsors, judges, entertainers, volunteers and donors/supporters, we would like to thank you for your part in making this film festival such a success.
The Ursula Awards Film Festival was created to showcase and give recognition to local and national filmmakers. This fundraiser also acknowledges the skill and talents of filmmakers. Soon the winning videos will be aired on VCAT.
