Our Beginnings

The Friends of Max Kolb Telethon began in 2002 as a tribute to Max Kolb, a Hofstra film student who was tragically killed. One of his close friends, Hofstra student Laura Fu, started the telethon in his honor, to raise money for a scholarship dedicated to helping film students like Max. More than a decade later the telethon is still going strong!

Each May, senior-level television students are chosen to carry on the tradition of making this complex telethon a reality. This live event features performances from talented musicians, interviews with staff, and showcases of current and past student work. Everyone who works on this show understands it’s importance to the Hofstra community. The successful execution of this “class project” provides scholarship opportunities and change lives by enabling film students to follow their dreams. The scholarship is awarded to deserving film students to offset the high costs of their senior film productions, which sometimes reach upwards of $5,000.

Thank you for taking to the time to check us out. We hope you find our cause as compelling as we do.
