Meet Filmmaker Andrew Jenks


When he was 16 Andrew Jenks founded the Hendrick Hudson Film Festival, now the largest high school film festival in the US. At 19, he made his first feature film, HBO’s award-winning “Andrew Jenks, Room 335.” Then, at 21, he spent seven months in Japan filming the ESPN documentary, “The Zen of Bobby V.” Two years later, he created “World of Jenks: the award-winning series which airs on MTV Series. Now Jenks has written a book about his experiences, Andrew Jenks: My Adventures As A Young Filmmaker.

We are very excited that Jenks will be at the UConn Co-op to talk about his book and share his insights and stories about filmmaking as a young person today. He is eager to meet UConn students. Who knows, he might even do a little filming in the bookstore so bring you best smile.
