Michelle Cohn, George Washington University
I am a junior at George Washington University majoring in American Studies and double minoring in Journalism/Mass Communication and French. I’m particularly interested in the power of film, and what we can learn about a society from the entertainment they produce. Being at PR Collaborative has given me an inside look at all the work and research that goes into press screenings, grassroots publicity, and partnering with larger institutions for events!
PR Collaborative gives lots of hands-on opportunities to learn the specifics of publicizing films. Attending the press screening for the film DENIAL was a great experience because I got an inside look at how screenings are organized and executed. On top of that, I got to see an amazing movie about an important and meaningful topic that continues to be relevant today.
PR Collaborative helps filmmakers spread their message and challenge audiences to think critically about culture and society. I’m so happy to be working with such a great time of smart, hard-working individuals, and I get excited every time I see a film we work with go out into the market!
Fun Facts: I sing in an all-female a cappella group, I’m on the Executive Board for a student theater company, and I enjoy impressionist artwork, stand-up comedy, and bagels.
