Dear friends of Filmworks,
Jim Piper, our friend and one of our all-volunteer organization’s founding board members, has passed away. He died Friday, age 78. Jim co-founded the film studies program at Fresno City College, where he taught film and English composition for many years. He served on the Filmworks board from its start, first in multiple roles as a board member and later on our advisory board.
Jim’s service to our community — through his time with Filmworks, his multiple published books on filmmaking, his own award-winning short films, and most of all his decades of dedicated teaching time — will be greatly missed. Services are pending.
