CONWAY, Ark. (AETN) - A product of the Arkansas Educational Television Network, "Student Selects: A Young Filmmakers Showcase" will be featured in the Little Rozck Film Festival Friday, May 18, at 1 p.m. in the Central Arkansas Library System's Darragh Center Auditorium.

 

This film highlights the work of Arkansas's next generation of filmmakers. In all of the productions, students from middle school to senior high school played key roles in the development and production of the projects. "Student Selects" highlights winners of festivals and programs, such as T Tauri Film Festival, a digital movie event encouraging the work of young filmmakers, and My Community, a statewide initiative that educates high school and college students about filmmaking as they create short documentaries about their communities.
"Student Selects" includes:

 

·      "Watching the Waters Rise," a documentary produced by Sarah and Emma Bailin of Little Rock. The sisters are students at Horace Mann Arts and Science Magnet Middle School and created the film as part of the EAST initiative.
·      "What is Normal Anyway?", a music video produced by West Junior High School in West Memphis. The video was supported by Opera Memphis, the Greater Memphis Arts Council and the Crittenden County Arts Council.
·      "School with a Vision," a My Community project produced by the Arkansas School for the Blind in Little Rock.
·      "If You Don't Like It, Change It," a music video produced by East Junior High School in West Memphis. The video was supported by Opera Memphis, the Greater Memphis Arts Council and the Crittenden County Arts Council.
·      "Emma Street," a My Community project produced by Springdale High School.
·      "The Tell-Tale Heart," a narrative adaptation produced by Fayetteville High School.

 

Following the presentation there will be a discussion with the filmmakers.
