MARIN INDEPENDENT JOURNAL -- Nik Oczkus, class of 2013, earned the trip to Cannes with his original film, To the Writers, which came in as one of the top four films at the San Francisco State University Campus Movie Festival in 2017.

After graduating from San Francisco State with a degree in film in 2017, Oczkus landed a job back in Novato, working for NCTV, Novato’s local community television station.

Oczkus is staying busy since returning from Cannes.

“I am working with my film school friends (the Crew) on making as many short films as we can,” he said. “Right now we have a comedy, a western and horror film in the works.”
