Assistant Professor and Head of Screenwriting Anahita Ghazvinizadeh's short film "NEEDLE" will be screened at Ginzaza Short Film Playground in Tokyo throughout the month of March. 

The Ginzaza Short Film Playground is a wonderfully unique film festival that takes place inside an underground parking lot. The film festival's website describes each edition of the annual festival as "a unique exploration into the short film format" with this year's edition centered around the theme of "control." Their goal is to "create a space where anyone, from non-movie goers to busy bees, can casually stop by." 

The Ginzaza Short Film Playground takes place March 3 through the 15 in Tokyo, where "NEEDLE" will be played at each showing. 

The Department of Cinematic Arts congratulates Anahita on this one-of-a-kind opportunity and accomplishment!
