r Sacred Heart Greenwich seniors from the Broadcast Journalism and Filmmaking program had the opportunity to visit CNBC’s live filming of the show “Fast Money” on March 3. Leah Atkins ‘20, Claire Chmiel ‘20, Lily DeConcini ‘20, and Avery McCloskey have been students in the Broadcast Journalism program for four years.
Upper School Broadcast Journalism students worked with the Lower School students in this interdisciplinary collaboration. The Broadcast students taught the 4th graders about filming, editing, scriptwriting, and operating the control room equipment.

As a project that stemmed from our CRTL group, Building Bridges to Barat Center, Barat Center students had the opportunity to collaborate with Upper School students in the David J. Bloom Broadcast Suite.
The boys and girls worked hard creating a project for their parents, and performed a song they had been practicing in front of the green screen.
Sacred Heart Greenwich Filmmaking and Broadcast Journalism students from visited the Jacob Burns Film Center in Pleasantville, New York on December 11. They attended a special screening of the film, Leave No Trace. Oscar-nominated director Debra Granik joined the students for a Q&A after the screening.
Ms. Granik makes films about people who are marginalized in society and shares stories often unseen in the public eye. She also directed Down to the Bone (2004) and Winter’s Bone (2010) starring Jennifer Lawrence.

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.
