Valencia High School students from Valencia Television celebrate with film festival creator, Andres Janks (green shirt), on the terrace of the AMC Theater in New York city's Times Square.

 

Earlier this year, Valencia Television - a production of Valencia High School - attended the All American High School Film Festival (AAHSFF) in New York City, which took place in the AMC Theaters in Times Square.

The AAHSFF gives young filmmakers a chance to see their films on the big screen. On the weekend of Oct. 4th through the 6th, Valencia Television flew out to the Big Apple, with high hopes of winning.

At the festival, the students attended expert panel discussions about the film industry and talked with colleges from all over the country that were interested in their work.

The most exciting part was seeing their films screened to an audience of hundreds of people.  The festival received over 1,000 submissions and the entries were judged by professionals in the film industry such as Dylan McDermott, Ed Burns, Morgan Spurlock, Diablo Cody, Henry Winkler, and several more.

Out of the 84 selections, four that were screened were from Valencia Television.

On the night of the awards ceremony, Valencia Television left being the biggest winner of the night.

Hayden Rusk won the Public Service Announcement category with his “Child Abduction” PSA; Teryn Brown’s film, “Shakespeare and Tacos,” won for best screenplay; and Claire Wiles’s “Last Dance” music video won the Kait Weston music video contest.

Each winner received gift cards and new editing software, along with prizes specific to their categories.
