On Friday, May 13, young filmmakers from 10 independent schools in Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New York will have their work shown in the Fourth Annual Williston Film Festival at The Williston Northampton School. The screening will take place at 6:30 p.m. in the Williston Theatre at 18 Park Street. It is free and open to the public.
The Williston Northampton School’s Film Club has organized the event. Every year they recruit a panel of judges from the community and the film industry. This year’s judges are alumni Patrick Burns ’89 (a film editor at Elevation Talent in New York City) and Loren Feinstein ’01 (filmmaker of Ciclovida: Lifecycle), along with Williston family member Marty Chang P’14 (a systems analyst at Northeastern University).
This year’s filmmakers represent the following schools: Berkshire School, The Governor’s Academy, The Hotchkiss School, Kingswood Oxford, Millbrook School, Pingree School, Pomfret School, Suffield Academy, Thayer Academy, and The Williston Northampton School.
