The Film Festival now stands at the top of my list of The BEST ArtsALIVE! Events of All Time …
It stands with The Poetry Slam and The Laramie Project. Each of these events crossed disciplines and was inspired by the united efforts of a varied but devoted group – with collaboration and artistry at their core.
The Film Festival Keynote Speaker, Mr. Spione, articulated a thoughtful message, carefully crafted to inspire and inform. He spoke from his heart, balanced by his intellect. What better qualities could we hope for our students to emulate?
The student work was so varied; moving, funny, artistic. It demonstrated a wide range of talents and sensitivities.
The organization behind the scenes by our ArtsALIVE! organizers – both students and committee members – was flawless. The sound system, the projector, the seamless organization and timing between the videos was exceptionally well done!
And, of course, the atmosphere at Caramoor was exquisite!
It was particularly rewarding for me to see so many faculty in the audience, on their own time, sharing in the mutual success of The Film Festival project, still in its infancy, but so full of promise.
What can I say? Let’s hope this continues for years to come.
