The Cultural Showcase Documentary!

Exactly one year later, we are thrilled to be able to share the 2014 Cultural Showcase Documentary! 

The man with the vision and behind the camera is Akos Meggyes, 2012 Salzburg Scholar and award winning filmmaker, who organized a film crew with seven cameras and a crane and then spent a year editing and synching more than 200 hours of footage from the live taping on April 17, 2014. 

With the Second Annual Cultural Showcase around the corner, it is wonderful to come full circle and celebrate the First Annual SJSU Cultural Showcase!

“It was my honor to be part of the Cultural Showcase from its inception when Erin started the planning phase. Our world is changing while its people transform from diverse nationals to Global Citizens. To streamline this transition we need to understand each other’s cultures, and the Cultural Showcase does a wonderful job aiding SJSU’s efforts toward this goal. Cultural diversity makes this world a beautifully vibrant place and I’m excited to work on documenting the manifestation of it on this colorful campus.”
