Congratulations to all the winners of the Film Festival 7! The goal of the annual Williston Northampton School Film Festival is to showcase the work of student filmmakers currently attending a high school in New England. The festival was held this year on May 15 in the Reed Campus Center.
“This year we received a larger than usual number of excellent entries,” said Ed Hing, adding that there had been 30 short films submitted by student filmmakers across New England. During the judging deliberations, magician Anthony Leung ’15 also kept the audience entertained.
