Five Ward Melville High School talented film students recently captured the attention of a national audience and had their original works selected to be screened during this year’s All-American High School Film Festival, which will be held in New York City from Oct. 11-13. 

This international competition is the world’s largest high school and middle school film, photography and media arts festival and draws thousands of applicants each year. 

“It is a true honor to have a film selected into this prestigious event,” said Jennifer Trettner, district visual arts coordinator. “The Ward Melville film program is definitely doing it right, as we have had films selected each year since 2014.”
