Ballard filmmakers nominated for national awards
BHS students have been nominated for 6 National Student Production Awards by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. Nominees were selected from winners of the student regional awards (regional awards were presented at the Northwest Emmy Awards ceremony). Ballard students received 6 of the 9 national nominations from our Northwest Region (Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana and Alaska).
The awards ceremony (hosted by Dancing with the Star's Tom Bergeron) will be live-streamed on Thursday, October 18 at noon. Watch at https://www.facebook.com/TheEmmys.
Nominated films continue to receive awards and accolades by various festivals, and we're excited to now also share a link to Oso Strong, a powerful documentary about the most deadly landslide in our nation's history. Three people intimately involved--a resident, a photojournalist and a geologist--share their stories of resilience, community and hope.
Attached are more details about the national awards program, and links to the films. We appreciate any publicity you can give to these outstanding national nominations. and to promote the award ceremony this Thursday, 10/18, at noon at https://www.facebook.com/TheEmmys.
