A pair of sensational films created by Huntington High School video arts students have been selected for screening at the All American High School Film Festival in Manhattan this fall.
Huntington’s film program has earned a sterling national reputation, repeatedly winning honors far and wide. Alums of the program have been getting accepted into some of the top college film schools in the country.
The All American High School Film Festival will put Huntington’s program squarely in the spotlight once again. “I’m so excited for these talented teenagers and thrilled our program is gaining more exposure in the greatest city in the world,” said teacher Heather Swan, who leads Huntington High School’s video arts program.
Soundbite and Sunrise Finds Us have both been picked by festival organizers. The festival will run October 6-8. The screenings, panel discussions, technology showcase and college fair will all be held at AMC Empire 25 Theaters at 234 West 42nd Street in Times Square. The awards show will take place at Kings Theatre on Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn.
Soundbite is an Official Selection in the drama category while Sunrise Finds Us was picked for the experimental category.
The Soundbite team consists of Charlie Ehrman, Emma Pipolo, Jack Glicker, Jackie Caravetto and Lindsay Martin. Ms. Pipolo developed Sunrise Finds Us.
Messrs. Ehrman (Cal State Northridge) and Glicker (Univ. of Delaware) and Ms. Pipolo (SUNY Geneseo) have all moved on to college. Ms. Caravetto and Ms. Martin are currently Huntington seniors.
