New film shorts from award winning Ballard filmmakers will be shown Feb. 9
Everyone is invited to a screening of new work by students in the Ballard High School Digital Filmmaking Program. The Ballard Film Festival (BFF) will be on Saturday, February 9 at 7 pm in the Ballard High School auditorium. The screening will feature short comedies and dramas as well as music videos. Tickets ($10 for adults and $5 for students) will be sold at the door.
Films that premiere at the BFF frequently go on to win honors from various film festivals and professional organizations. This fall, BHS film students earned five Official Selections at the international All American High School Film Festival in New York City, six national nominations (and three winners) from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, two winners at Fresh Film Northwest, and two Official Selections plus 3rd Prize in the 48-Hour Film competition at the National Film Festival for Talented Youth. (Films screened at previous BFF’s can now be seen on the Digital Filmmaking Program’s vimeo site.)
All funds raised by the BFF will benefit students in the Digital Filmmaking Program. For more information, visit www.bhsvideo.blogspot.com.
