For Immediate Release


HEALDSBURG JUNIOR HIGH STUDENT FILMS
SELECTED FOR SHORT FILM FESTIVAL
 

Four out of the 15 films were created by
Healdsburg Junior High Students.
 

March 13, 2015Four short films created by Healdsburg Junior High students were selected for Sonoma County of Education’s Five Minute Film Festival. All Sonoma County K-12 students were invited to submit a short film that focused on the theme of growth. A judging panel reviewed 127 film submissions and selected the top 15 films to debut at the Third Street Cinema in Santa Rosa the evening of March 16, 2015.


Teachers Lillian Fonseca and Bella Barclay incorporated the film projects into their student’s Project Based Inquiry Language Arts curriculum. Beginning in January, students began to research the theme of growth to write their film proposal, script, and storyboards. Teachers and students learned how to use technical film editing tools and software to create their short films. Students were able to work independently or collaboratively depending on their project scope.


"At HUSD, we believe that students learn best when they are inspired and engaged," said Jeff Harding, HUSD Superintendent. "The film project initiative taken by our teachers is a perfect example of the integration of academics and technology to create motivating project based learning that teaches relevant 21st century skills."


“I witnessed students have that aha moment,” said Bill Halliday, Healdsburg Junior High Principal. "A subject they didn’t consider relevant suddenly became interesting as they discovered the relevance of classroom learning to tell their own stories on film.”


Films were selected based on the film’s connection to the topic of growth, storytelling, educational content, and creativity. Healdsburg Junior High’s selected films are: 

  • "I Am Alexa" by Alexa Bail
  • "Change By Change" by Mia Palmieri
  • Growth of Art" by Jomei Tillis and Joel Castro
  • "Ain't I a Woman" by Chloe Robson, Sirena Licea and  Beatriz Savin

All Healdsburg Junior High student films may be viewed at http://bit.ly/HJHFonsecaFilms and http://bit.ly/HJHBarclayFilms.


“When one thinks back to their middle school years, they remember the times when they had the opportunity to shine, ” said Lillian Fonseca and Bella Barclay, HJH teachers. “The film project was a powerful and inspiring moment that all of our students will carry with them for the rest of their lives.”
