The St. John AV Productions class submitted two films for consideration in the prestigious international All American High School Film Festival. At the end of July students Fabian Garcia, Connor Gilespie, and Mackenzie Hacker found out that their films were made official selections! They were selected from 2,500 submissions, sent from all 50 states and 40 different countries.
Films “No Home: The Housing Crisis in Rural Kansas” a documentary by Fabian and Connor and “I’m Not,” a PSA by Mackenzie will be showing on the big screen! The film festival is being held at the AMC Empire Theater in Times Square, right in the heart of New York City on October 21st. The students’ films being selected make them eligible to earn scholarships towards university. Last year, $600,000 in scholarships and prizes were given to winners.
This is a 3-day event from October 20th – 22nd in New York City. Fabian Garcia needs your help in representing St. John and Kansas on the International Stage! Please contact Fabian for more information in how to help him get to New York. Contact Fabian at [email protected] or 620-352-0324.
