More than twenty years ago, Jack Larson approached KCET with the idea of creating a student film series that would provide talented students with the opportunity to have their short films aired on television. Larson thought that public television was an excellent platform for providing critical visibility to emerging filmmakers. KCET shared Larson's enthusiasm and together they created, "Fine Cut Festival of Films."
