USI faculty-produced Art for Science’s Sake wins “Best Hoosier Made Film” at Victory International Film Festival


Art for Science’s Sake: Stalking John James Audubon, produced by two University of Southern Indiana professors, was featured at the Victory International Film Festival September 7-9 and won “Best Hoosier Made Film.” The Victory International Film Festival is held in Evansville, Indiana, every September and features exclusively local films.

Dr. Leigh Anne Howard, Communication and Media Department Chair and Professor of Communication Studies, and Dr. David Black, Associate Professor Emeritus of Radio and Television, produced the one-hour documentary which explores the art and science of 19th century naturalist John James Audubon.

Together, they donated their prize of $500 to the Dave Black Endowed Scholarship for Radio-Television at USI.
