A New Year and A New Judge

The Bridge Film Festival is pleased to announce a new judge for the festival.

Jeremy Alan Richards was raised Quaker and taught drama and IB theatre, as well as directed several productions, at Brooklyn Friends School for seven years. He received his M.F.A. from NYU Tisch School of the Arts with a major in acting. Mr. Richards is a National Shakespeare Competition Champion, a FOX Fellowship recipient for a New York City tour of Woza Albert as well as a Daryl Roth Award winner for the demo of his musical Morgan Street which continued to be developed in New York for several years.

Currently, Jeremy lives in Los Angeles where he works with the E! Entertainment Network on their coverage of E! Live from the Red Carpet and has worked in production for many projects for the four years he has lived in LA. He also writes and develops for film and television and is currently co-authoring a memoir for a management consultant that they hope to release by the end of the year. Jeremy is excited to help young film makers sharpen their craft as they continue to tell compelling stories through the visual medium.
