On April 10, the eighth-grade students in Dorset House at Frederick H. Tuttle Middle School will be watching the fruits of their labors.
Jack Lyons and Tammy Vujanovic appeared on the Channel 3 News to talk about their projects.
For the past three weeks, the eighth-graders have been learning about using storytelling to make people care.
During this unit, called P3 (Project/Performance/Place), the students shared and reflected on stories based on a variety of issues. They focused on discovering what elements from these stories made them care, with the ultimate goal of using this knowledge to create their own films.
The festival will feature 14 3-5 minute films. All of the groups were challenged to explore a theme that they cared deeply about in their films.
This event is now open to the public. No admission is being charged, so come one, come all to the Dorset House Film Festival on April 10 at 7 p.m. at the South Burlington High School auditorium.
