SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL INVITES BALLARD VIDEO STUDENTS
January 3, 2008
Thanks to a scholarship from the Sundance Institute, 12 students from the BHS Video Production Program will be attending the Sundance Film Festival this January. The students will each receive a festival credential and priority ticket reservations, and the ticket fees will be waived. In addition to the many opportunities to screen new films and learn from the filmmakers, the Institute is setting up a special event just for the filmmakers to discuss their craft with the students. Each year, the Sundance Institute selects a limited number of college and high school programs from across the nation for this educational opportunity.
Students from the BHS Video Production Program previously attended the festival in January of 2006 (also with a scholarship from the institute). Several of those students subsequently produced work that took honors and awards at various national festivals, as well as winning recognition for their productions from the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts.
