Student Filmmakers Can Enter CSD, White House Festivals

Is the next generation of Sundance Film Festival or Academy Award-winning directors in our midst?

While the country’s attention may be on star-studded award shows and festivals, Canyons students and teachers are busy at work on their entries for the fifth-annual Canyons District Film Festival.

The deadline to submit an entry is 5 p.m. Thursday, March 13, 2014. Teachers and students are encouraged to enter films in the Thursday, April 10, 2014 festival. All students, parents and members of the community are invited to attend the free event.
The deadline to submit intent-to-participate forms for the advertisement category has been extended to Friday, Jan. 31, 2014. This is an opportunity for students interested in marketing and advertising to work with local businesses.

Participants also may enter seven film categories and a poster design contest. The categories are feature film, documentary, animation, PSA, newscast, advertisement and teacher film.

Entries submitted to CSD’s film festival also can be submitted to the first-ever White House Student Film Festival.

The topic of the inaugural White House festival: Technology in classrooms.  “We’re looking for awesome student filmmakers to show the power of technology in classrooms in a short film,” the White House says in a promotion for the festival.  Winners will have their films shown on the White House Web site and screened at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The deadline is Wednesday, Jan. 29, 2014.

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!
