A cinematic tradition is returning to Hendrick Hudson High School later this month….
Hendrick Hudson High School will be hosting the 11th Annual Film Festival on Friday, May 17th at 6:30 p.m. Founded by Hen Hud alum Andrew Jenks in 2002, this year’s festival will feature another Hen Hud Alumni Jeff Camarra, who will be the Keynote Speaker and will share some clips from his award winning documentary “Up & Down”.
The night will begin with a Red Carpet event in front of the high school. Student filmmakers will be arriving by Limo provided by Settembre Limousines and will walk the Red Carpet, experiencing the glamour of the Academy Awards with interviews and photo opportunities with the Keynote Speaker!
Regarded as the premiere high school film festival, the evening will showcase the filmmaking talents of students throughout the tri-state area, as well as some submissions from across the country such as Utah and California. Having received submissions from over 20 schools, the festival will screen films in the following categories: Music, Video, Animation, Documentary, Drama, PSA and Comedy. Each film will be competing for individual awards as well as the coveted grand prize; “The Andrew W. Jenks Award”.
Festival Organizer Paul LaVallee commented that “the anticipation that this year’s festival will have the greatest talent and films within each category of all since its inception in 2002, will amaze the audience and make for an exciting evening. You will be impressed to see what our kids are doing with cameras these days!”
Admission is $5. T-shirts, popcorn, drinks and candy will be sold. Please come out and support the arts in your community! If you need additional information or have any questions, please contact Paul LaVallee (firstname.lastname@example.org) or (914) 257-5813.
