​The Annual Canyons District Film Festival is an opportunity for students and teachers to show their knowledge, skill, and creativity through the art of filmmaking.

This year is our 13th annual festival, and it promises to continue the tradition of student excellence we have seen year after year.
Students and teachers may enter films for competition in five categories: Short Film, Documentary, Animation, PSA, and Newscast. Students may also submit entries to our Film Festival poster contest.

There are four levels of competition: Elementary, Middle, High, and Teacher. Participants are welcome to choose any theme for their films and are welcome to submit films they have created for class projects or other competitions.

Nominees, administrators, teachers, friends, families, and anyone in the Canyons School District community are invited to join us for this celebration.

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
