Madeline Fagundo

Madeline Fagundo is a product manager at the Hillman group in Denver, Colorado. She holds a B.A. in Rhetoric, Film, and Screen Studies from Bates College and was a board member of the 2019 Bates Film Festival. Madeline co-led the effort to bring the first-ever VR screening to the BFF.  As one of the co-producers of the event, she helped to obtain access to the title, secure the participation of the filmmakers, and facilitate the necessary equipment and a suitable venue for the screening.  All of this created a space where VR served as a catalyst for dialogue in communities beyond the classroom. Raised in Boulder, Colorado, Madeline hopes to attend the Mountain Film, Telluride, and/or Sundance Festivals in the near future. (Written by Owen McShane ‘22)
