Taking Antarctica from the editing room of the Film Bureau to the screen at the Woods Hole Film Festival was beyond surreal. It’s been well over a year since production on this project first began and to see all the pieces come together for the first time was an unforgettable experience.
Beyond the Editing Room: A Sneak Peak of “Antarctica” at the Woods Hole Film Fest. by Film Student Gabrielle Gatdula

It felt only fitting to bring Antarctica to Woods Hole, an area of Cape Cod known for its oceanography. Prior to screening the film, the team participated in a couple presentations about our experience being a part ofAntarctica and bridging science and art together. Seeing all the people interested in the unique filmmaking program we have at Rutgers made me feel proud to have gotten my filmmaking education there.
Our screening of Antarctica not only played to a sold out theater, but we also got to be part of an impassioned Q&A panel. It was mind blowing to see how passionate audience members felt about the film, and it was humbling to have people come up to us and say we were doing important work. It truly made being part of the long process of making the film worth it. I can’t wait to see where else we can take Antarctica from here!
