"Quaker Film Course"

The first two entries into the Bridge Film Festival 2017 have arrived from Friends School Mullica Hill. Jared Valdez, Director of Communications and Marketing sent the following note:

Thanks, Andy! This has been a really rewarding process with these kids. We turned a 7th Grade Quaker Studies course into a "Quaker Film Course" and studied technique... they did storyboarding, scriptwriting, we held a mini-film festival in class where we watch Bridge Film Festival entries. Students led the entire process and they loved it so much that they would come in during recess/lunch and film and tinker -- even after the class semester was over. This is such a cool thing you've put together here -- thanks so much for all you do. 

And thank you Jared and all the BFF film advisors for all you do for your students and the Festival.

Deadline for entry is March 15, 2017
