As producer of the short film The Lottery, Academy of Art University School of Motion Pictures & Television graduate student Leky Lin wasted no time putting classroom teachings into practice. The lessons from Patricia Pawlak’s film distribution and film festival preparation class, in combination with Lin’s work ethic and the strength of the film itself, have propelled The Lottery to remarkable success on the film festival circuit.
