GPS Film Festival Celebrates 10 Years of Movie Magic!

10th annual film festival 2

This year, Greenfield Public Schools Film Festival, an annual event​ showcasing student filmmaking and artistic achievement, will be celebrating its 10-year anniversary on Friday, May 8th 2020 at the Greenfield High School Auditorium! In addition to showcasing films created by students throughout the district, the event will feature the second year of the GPS Arts Showcase, an art gallery walk featuring 2D and 3D work by GPS students. To celebrate this achievement the GPS Film Festival will be featuring guest award presenters from the local community and highlighting past achievements in film within the district. 

Started by former GPS employee Mary Link in 2009 as a way to connect with the local community, the GPS Film Festival has been growing steadily each year. In 2017 the Film Festival had over 60 entries from students across grades featuring a variety of filmmaking techniques. Last year, the event expanded to include the first ever GPS Arts Showcase that featured student artwork and student musical performances. Amazingly, even the food was made and provided by students with assistance from Chef Martin Yaffee of GHS. 

Students can begin submitting films at any point throughout the year. All films are due by Friday, April 3rd 2020.  More information, including submission forms, can be found online here or by contacting the Film Festival Co-Directors, Andrew Lippman (Andlip1@gpsk12.org​)​ or Brendan Leowolf (Breleo1@gpsk12.org​).​
