Columbia Alum Katie Sponseller, MFA '15, has had her short film, "Alone Together" screened at the LA Shorts film festival.

"Alone Together," screened October 8th, tells the story of a fifteen-year-old girl who makes the decision to join a boy's wrestling team in the aftermath of sexual assault. This film is latest addition to Sponseller's thriving career, which has included shows with networks as diverse as Fox, Starz, CBS, Amazon, eko, Showtime, and AppleTV+.

"Alone Together," which was written and directed by Sponseller, had a mostly female crew, including a female director of photography, assistant director, production designer, and editor.
