It’s About Time, the short film by Reporter editor-in-chief Mark Pulaski, is on it’s way to China.

The short film, which was Miami Dade College’s official selection into the Miami + Shanghai Cinemaslam student film contest, won for the category of Best Technical Achievement.

In addition to the notoriety, which comes along with the win, Pulaski was also awarded a week-long filmmaking workshop from the New York Film Academy, Mandarin Chinese lessons from the Confucius Institute, and the opportunity to have the film screened at the Shanghai International Film Festival in June—along with FIU’s entry White Meat, which won for Best Director, and UM’s The Meter Man of Le Moutrechon.

“I just want to thank everyone who worked on the film,” Pulaski said to the crowd on Monday, March 10 at Regal South Beach Cinemas.

The Reporter’s Crystal Esparza, Edgard Lobo and Gregory Castillo were also involved in the project, which was done for a Film Production 4 class last fall.

It’s About Time is an 11-minute adventure comedy about a pair of time travelling college roommates. As per the rules of certain festivals, the film is currently not up for public viewing but will be made available once the one-year eligibility period has expired.
