The red carpet will be rolled out for all of our student filmmakers and their families at 5pm on each night. The Showing of the films will begin at 6p.m. at Cineport 10 Allen Theatres. Last year, Students took on the challenge of coming up with a storyline for their film, adapting it to a script, then filming, acting, directing, producing, and editing it all together within the 48 hour and 168 hour film competition deadline. More than 200 student filmmakers participated in the film showcase last year. There were 59 non-competitive films and 7 competitive films submitted.

Every February, people in the United States celebrate the achievements and history of African Americans as part of Black History Month. Black History Month was created to focus attention on the contributions of African Americans to the United States. It honors all Black people from all periods of U.S. history, from the enslaved people first brought over from Africa in the early 17th century to African Americans living in the United States today. Today, we celebrate the life and accomplishments of Serena Williams. She is a beacon to many as she dominated the world of professional tennis for decades, making a name for herself in the history books. Serena Williams is a tremendous success and an inspiration.
