Three productions by Ballard High School video students have been named Official Selections of the Westport Youth Film Festival. The honored films are The Craft by Walker Evans, Elise Neroutsos, James Vitz-Wong & Sam Weller; Dream House by Ariahna Ghormely, Ana Krafchick & Louis Weissman, and A Comfortable Home, a project produced over the summer by Isaiah Hoban Halverson. The festival will take place in Bridgeport, Connecticut, on June 2nd.

Westport is home to many New York film professionals, and the festival, in association with the Westport Arts Center, is designed to provide an outlet for young filmmakers to share their work in a professional environment and receive constructive criticism from a combination of peers and professionals. This competitive festival screens “the best international and national high school and middle school films.” For more about WYFF, visit

Dream House will premiere with other works produced by students during the spring semester at The Showing on Friday, June 1st in the BHS auditorium. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for students.
