The Camas School District announced today the official program selections for its third Student Film Festival. These budding filmmakers were given the prompt: “What Being a Superhero Means.”  Interpretations and innovations abound in their short vignettes. A celebration of technology and artistry, this film festival brings student voice to the district’s strategic plan that directs the district’s course through the year 2020.

On March 23, 2017, parents, staff, and citizens are invited to view the film entries at Liberty Theatre in downtown Camas. The event is free and open to the public. Doors will open at 4:30 p.m., and the films will begin at 5:00 p.m. The program is expected to run for approximately one hour.

Camas Mayor Scott Higgins will emcee the event and help to present awards for the young filmmakers. The event is free, and concessions will be available for purchase inside the lobby.
