6th Farrington Film Fest

If you had not heard about this video competition tell your kids, teachers, and students in the Farrington Complex of 12 Schools. Winning videos will be streamed on PacificNetwork.tv so relatives anywhere in the world may view videos. Here is info on the event from Christine Ho, Farrington Film Festival Exec Producer:

The 6th Annual Farrington Film Festival
April 19, 2012. 5:30 Musical performances by the Farrington Band and others. 6:00 Videos. 8:30 Award Ceremony

The Farrington Film Festival was born in 2007, with the support and encouragement of then principal Catherine Payne. I wanted to showcase our Farrington High School digital media students’ videos on the Big Screen. Video is a way for youth to share their unique passions, visions and stories with the public. We take pride in the festival. It is a free, fun, g-rated, and intergenerational event.

I opened the festival to the twelve schools of the Farrington Complex. There are nine elementary schools- Kalihi, Kalihi-Kai, Kalihi-Uka, Kalihi-Waena, Kapalama, Linapuni, Kaewai, Puuhale, and Fern, and two middle schools; Dole and Kalakaua. All schools contribute to the art displays. We organize an art exhibition outside the school auditorium, while inside, we have a juried video competition. Our judges this year are Kirk Matthews (anchor and reporter, KHON TV), Kathryn Xian (former Executive Director, Girl Fest Hawaii Film Festival and Executive Director, Pacific Alliance to Stop Slavery), and Arthur Umezu (Head of Kauai Film Commission). Our major sponsor is The Farrington Alumni and Community Foundation. Their grant allows us to offer cash prizes, t-shirts for participating students, to pay for advertising and marketing, as well as buses for students of the feeder schools to attend a daytime showing. www,farringtonfilmfestival@yahoo.com
