CRESSKILL, N.J. -- The Cresskill Middle School and High School will be hosting the Third Annual NJ High School Film Festival on May 19.
The Festival will screen a selection of short films submitted by high-school students from the tri-state area. The films -- in the category of comedy, nonfiction, PSA, music video, animation, experimental and the themed category "Tomorrow is Another Day" -- will reflect the stories, styles and experiences of teenagers today.
The First in Festival winner will receive a $250 scholarship, the winning video in each category will receive a $100 scholarship grant, among other prizes.
"We are excited about this year's film festival submissions," said Film Festival Coordinator Shane Kress. "It's wonderful that so many aspiring teen filmmakers share a passion for storytelling through video production and this festival provides a fun environment to showcase their films."
The red-carpet ceremony will start at 6 p.m., at Cresskill Middle and High School, and screenings and awards will begin at 7.
