BHS Films to be Featured at International Festival

Two films by students from the Ballard High School Digital Filmmaking Program will be screened at the Seattle Children’s Film Festival this weekend. This year, the festival will screen 175 films from 58 different countries. Most of the films were produced by professionals, but all the films are aimed at children and their families. The festival will screen at Seattle’s Northwest Film Forum through February 7.

The two Ballard films will be among 19 by young filmmakers to be featured in the Super Shenanigans: Films by Youth screening this Sunday, January 25 at 7 pm. Great Mime’s Think Alike (by Will Slater, Michael Vitz-Wong & Kiana Wyld) explores a turf war between two competing mimes. Air Pressure (by Coleman Anderson, Leo Pfeifer & Josh Vredevoogd) concerns a disaster at the World Championship Balloon Animal Competition. Both films have previously been honored by a variety of regional and national festivals.
