Sequim’s Student Film Festival premieres nine movies Friday night

Sequim Middle and High Schoolers banded together to create nine films for the 12th annual Student Film Festival and Art Show this weekend.

The films, ranging from serious to comedic, debut at 7 p.m. Friday, April 21, in the Sequim High School Auditorium, 533 N. Sequim Ave. An art show precedes the event at 6 p.m.

This year’s films include:

• “We Can Be It!” by Marley Reeder, Lindsey Coffman, Autumn Shaw, Kelsi Bergesen, Kariya Johnson, Kristina Baker, Madelyn Pickens (from Sequim Middle School)

• “Welcome to Life” by Luke Silliman and Emma Gallaher (from Sequim High School)

• “The Definition of Happiness” by Victoria Hall (SHS)

• “Alone-Episode #2-Super Speed” by Nicholas D’Amico (SHS)

• “Emotions” by Abygail Mundy and Valentina Simao (SHS)

• “The King Heart” by Atticus Wickert and Truman Wickert (SHS)

• “One Spring Day” by Raymond Lam (SHS) and Steven Lam (SMS)

• “Who Would Have Thought” by Kalli Wiker and McKenna Hastings (SMS)

• “My New Neighbor” by Maddy Dietzman and Amanda Weller (SMS)

Each short movie is screened beforehand to make sure content is appropriate for all-ages. Judges select the top films, which receive $1,000, $750 and $500 for first-third place from the Sequim Education Foundation, which sponsors the event and has awarded more than $50,000 in awards since starting the festival.

As is custom, a “People’s Choice” award will be given out along with new awards for films based on volunteerism and school spirit.

Cost for entry to the festival is a suggested donation of $5, which supports the foundation’s prizes for the event. This year, Sequim High School students Annie Armstrong and Abygail Mundy serve as Masters of Ceremonies and Emma Stoeckl as technical director.
