The Film Festival originated as an idea for a GT project by Yuri Stone and Rebecca Zia of River Hill High School. It is a county-wide event, and numerous students have found it to be an excellent means of demonstrating their skills in the art of film and direction.
We have received many absolutely brilliant films in the past from extremely talented participants who exhibit skills that in many cases parallel those of professional filmmakers. We are very proud of the talented individuals who come out each year to showcase their accomplishments. It is an excellent experience for any student looking to pursue a career in filmmaking, directing, television – any and all of the media arts.
In anticipation of the astonishing talent exhibited by this county’s filmmakers and artists, we are deep in preparation for the up and coming 2017 film festival. Help us all make it a blast! Submit a film of your own!
The 14th annual Howard County Student Film Festival will be held on Friday, March 9, 2018 from 7pm-9pm at the Miller Library in Ellicott City.
