Despite Rain Challenges, Fifth Annual Film Festival Was a Star-Studded Success

Last Friday’s Fifth Annual Film Festival showcased 17 different films by 13 upper school students, including many that were the product of quarantine throughout the last year. Although originally planned for viewing in God’s Front Yard, even after an initial rain postponement, the rain forced viewers inside to the Dining Commons. Despite the change in location, students had a blast viewing their classmates' films. 

To follow social distancing guidelines, this year’s event was limited to only upper school students. Students brought their own blankets and grabbed snacks from the servery before settling in for the showing. “We’ve always wanted to do an outdoor film festival,” said Upper School Film Teacher Bobby Weiss. “Although it didn’t work out this year, we look forward to revisiting this idea in the future!”

The following films were shown at the festival:

“Blockhead” by Sevy Smith ’23
