Ballard High School’s Digital Filmmaking Program is celebrating after it was chosen by the All American High School Film Festival to receive a $5,000 “In Focus” grant from IMAX.
The AAHSFF partnered with IMAX and the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) to form the “In Focus” initiative, which is a component of IMAX “Big Picture” project, a program designed to use the influence of film to inspire action and positive social change.
AAHSFF is the largest high school film festival in the nation and schools from across the country participate every year. The festival recently had its opening night last week when the announcement was made in New York City. Other programs that received grants were Woodrow Wilson High School, (Washington, D.C.), University School of Nova Southeastern University (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.), Canyon Crest Academy (San Diego) and Mythic Bridge (New York City).More ›
