The seventh annual All-American High School Film Festival (AAHSFF) features 15 Sacred Heart Greenwich students’ films. The films will be showcased on the big screen in the AMC Theatre located in Times Square from October 11-13.
The international competition offers $400,000 in prizes and scholarships. Students have the opportunity to walk the red carpet and visit the largest film and media college fair in the country.
Finalist Sophia Georgas ‘20 said, “I am so grateful to be accepted into such a prestigious film festival and be able to spend time with so many talented filmmakers.”
“To be accepted into the world’s largest high school film festival is a great honor. It feels so rewarding to know that a project that required much time and effort is able to be viewed by a much wider range of people, rather than just in my own high school community,” finalist Daniella Tocco ‘20 said.
For these Sacred Heart students, AAHSFF is an opportunity to see how film can spread a message for good.
“I believe that we all discuss such important issues and value the power of film, and how it is such a great tool to convey the youth’s opinion on current events,” Sophia said.
