The Los Angeles Unified School District’s Arts Education Branch in the Division of Instruction is hosting a spectacular evening of student films at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Beverly Hills (8949 Wilshire Blvd) on May 24, 2018, at 6pm. The 4th Annual LAUSD Student Film Festival will begin with red carpet interviews with student filmmakers and special guests. Press is invited to join us on the red carpet at 6pm, and the screening will begin at 7pm.
Hundreds of LA Unified elementary, middle and high school filmmakers and their dedicated teachers representing every Local and Board District will be in attendance to celebrate the selected short films. The hour-long showcase will feature student-produced documentaries, thrillers, music videos, animation and more!
The 2017 L.A. Unified Student Film Festival was a huge success with over 500 students and teachers in attendance. The evening included a red carpet filled with students and families, both professional and student photographers, and numerous media outlets. The screening began with remarks from industry professionals who spoke to the students about their futures and shared insider tips on “making it in the industry.” Actor and Director Roger Guenveur Smith gave a moving speech, inspiring students to pursue their dreams.
Rory Pullens, Senior Executive Director of Arts Education, has said, “It is through our collaboration with institutions such as the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences that the L.A. Unified Arts Education Branch can elevate our students’ experiences and create a bridge from our schools to the creative industry. This is an incredible evening showcasing the work of the next generation of great filmmakers. They deserve your support.”
