The Ballard Film Festival, originally scheduled for February 6 and 26, has been postponed until spring.  The new dates will be Friday, June 3 and Saturday, June 11 at 7 pm in the BHS auditorium.  The screening will feature short comedies and dramas, ads and PSAs, news features, documentaries, and music videos.  Tickets ($10 for adults and $5 for students) will be sold at the door.  Films that first screen at the BFF routinely take honors at prestigious national and international film festivals and the Northwest Emmy Awards.

Generous support from our community and school district have made new post-production facilities a reality for Ballard’s Digital Filmmaking Program this year.  Installation had been scheduled for July, but due to various delays was not completed until December.  Production deadlines – and the festival – have been adjusted accordingly.  Although we’re sorry to postpone the festival, the state of the art facilities were worth the wait!
