AHS Cinema Production News

The AHS Cinema Production program had its first Film Festival selection screened on March 5th at the 2017 Gasparilla International Film Festival (GIFF) in Ybor City.

The High School Competition had its screening at the AMC/Muvico Theatre in Ybor, and attendance was a packed house! Our entry also took home a “Best Female Performance in a Short Film” Nomination; we are very much looking forward to participating with GIFF again next year.

In other great Cinema Production news, the film screened at GIFF has also been accepted into yet another Film Festival – the 2017 Revolution Film Festival at Southeastern University!
