Peter Jackson was 16 when he made his first film, a stop-motion and live action film about a rift in the space-time continuum. Tim Burton made his first film, an animated adaptation of The Island of Doctor Moreau, at 13. Steven Spielberg’s first film? The Last Train Wreck at the ripe old age of — 11.
These great directors began showing their skills at a young age, as do our selected student filmmakers for 2018. These students are not only creative – they are daring and have the courage to tell their stories in a unique way, and not influenced by the lens of time.
This year’s student filmmakers rose to the occasion! Competing for three scholarships ($1,000, $500 and $250) to the Yavapai College Film and Media Arts Program is sponsored by a generous private donation made to the Yavapai College Foundation.
Co-sponsored by the Prescott Film Festival and the YC Film & Media Arts Program, we hope you will join us for a FREE screening of these films on Sunday, June 10 at 1:00 pm in the Workshop room (Building 3, room 119).
