|Some of the talented filmmakers who
work on Split Screen:
Steven Bognar's first film, PERSONAL BELONGINGS, debuted at the 1996
Sundance Film Festival, aired nationally on P.O.V. and went on to play in
over two dozen international film festivals. The film has been broadcast
on national television in France, Germany, Russia, Poland, Hungary and
Australia, among other countries.
Bognar is, along with Julia Reichert, the producer of THE DREAM CATCHER,
independent feature that debuted at the 1999 Los Angeles Independent Film
Festival, where its director, Ed Radtke, won BEST DIRECTOR award.
Bognar and Reichert have also, for the last two years, been shooting a
long-form documentary about five kids dealing with cancer. This is the
biggest project either has ever undertaken, and the most challenging.
They have already videotaped over 240 hours of footage for the film.
Bognar's newest film, completed Summer 1999, is called PICTURE DAY, a 7
minute short collision between animation and documentary.
