More than 30 BISS students will be attending this year’s festival on 17th and 18th March, while Mr Ekkel is serving as the festival president this year. Students will take part in filmmaking workshops hosted by Vancouver Film School and collaborate in filmmaking with students from other schools.
Several BISS students have entered their films for awards consideration. All of the following films will be also shown at the event, while judges will create a shortlist in each category in advance of the festival.
The shortlisted films will be announced next week.
Good luck to all our student filmmakers!
