The 8th annual Greenfield Student Film Festival took place on May 11th.  The event was a true showcase of student talent throughout the district.  In addition to films being shown, performances by members of the High School band took place, as well as, art being displayed in the hallway and cafeteria.  Attendees viewed films of all kinds including, animation, claymation, stop motion, montage, and even a few newscasts.  Special thanks to all of our judges, parents, and administrators who supported the event.
