About Us

Leadership


Cynthia Li is a junior studying Computer Science and Cinema & Media Studies. Her love of movies stems from an obsession with the Oscars and celebrity/pop culture. Cynthia loves to talk about films and the film industry (seriously ask her friends and family) at club meetings, so she’s happy to talk to anyone about any film, especially A Star is Born. This will be Cynthia's third year involved with Film Club and her second as Co-President!

Issac Flores is a junior majoring in Bioengineering. His love of film started with the original Spider-Man trilogy and went on from there. In his free time, besides watching films, he plays board games and reads. This is his third year as a part of film club and his first year as Social Media and Communications Lead.

Stephanie Chuang is a sophomore studying Computer Science and Cinema and Media Studies. She got into movies after she watched the Oscars for the first time in eighth grade and has been obsessed ever since. Additionally, she enjoys musicals, reading, and Asian food. This is her second year in Film Club and first as Website Lead.

Joel Garcia is a junior studying Communications. He’s been in love with film from a young age, his interest probably stemming from the joy of seeing Sam and Frodo get rescued by those eagles atop Mount Doom. When he’s not watching movies, Joel is also passionate about photography and music. He’s been a part of film club for the past two years, and is in his first year as Co-President.

Jim Saunders is a sophomore studying Political Science and Informatics. His love for film and media came into fruition from a very young age, but that love wasn’t fully explored until he saw La La Land, the film that inspired him to start a film club at his high school. When he’s not watching or reviewing movies, he’s either playing guitar, hanging out with his dog, or spending too much time on Reddit. This is his second year being a part of film club, and his first year as Podcast Lead.
