Awards Piling Up for Smith’s Short Film

A short film by Ya’Ke Smith, Assistant Professor of Art, continues to garner accolades and attention from around the country.

Shorts Film Festival in Washington, D.C. And earlier this week, the film was named Best Narrative Short at the BET/Urbanworld Film Festival in New York City.
