Light House Studio hosted its 15th Annual Youth Film Festival at the Paramount Theater in Charlottesville on August 26th. The event featured short films produced in collaboration with community partners, including Friendship Court.

The Friendship Court kids worked with Light House Studio to create Keep it REEL, a documentary about 3D printers.  Several of the young filmmakers attended the festival along with Piedmont Housing Alliance’s Friendship Court Activity Coordinator, Tory Twitty and Sheri Hopper, community outreach assistant.

Good news: Keep it REEL has been selected to be screened at the National Endowment for the Humanities’ History on the Silver Screen: Student Film Competition Screening Thursday, September 15th at 5:30pm at Vinegar Hill Theatre. The screening is open to the public and is on a first-come, first-served basis. Judges will choose the best documentary films, and the winner will receive a $500 prize, as well as VIP seating at a screening and Q&A of Freedom Riders at the September HumanTies Forum with award-winning director Stanley Nelson!

Way to go Friendship Court and Light House Studio!
