COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

A group of Columbus State University was recently recognized for their outstanding work on the award-winning film, Still.

The modern suspense drama made its worldwide debut at the Atlanta Film Festival and became the recipient of the Georgia Award, which is given to the top film produced in Georgia.

During the award’s on-stage presentation, the film’s director recognized the twelve interns from CSU’s Communication Department’s Georgia Film Academy certificate program.

As part of their internship requirement, the students served as on-set film crew members.

CSU Associate Vice President for Engagement and Economic Development Richard Baxter and Communication Department Chair Danna Gibson helped recruit the film to Columbus, allowing for economic growth to the community and saving the students a commute to Atlanta to complete the requirement.

Still is set in present-day Georgia, where a young hiker stumbles onto an isolated farm after losing her way along the Appalachian Trail. She is taken in and cared for by a couple desperate to protect a secret hidden in the mountains.

The film stars Star Trek Beyond actress Lydia Wilson, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. actor Nick Blood and Madeline Brewer, from The Handmaid’s Tale and Orange is the New Black.
