La Film Festival gives students a fresh opportunity to grab videocams and shoot stories; deadline Feb. 20

Teachers of English, social studies, science and art, please consider making a video production an option for an upcoming project. If students are clever and hardworking, their video project might be entered in the Louisiana Film Fest.

The LaFF is sponsored by the Robinson Film Center, Shreveport, as well as by Centenary College and Louisiana Public Broadcasting.

The RFC's marketing and education director, Chris L. Jay, says "I’m trying everything I can to get educators involved in motivating their students to create something for the 2006 Louisiana Film festival – Student Division. This year, we’ve got more than $1,000 in cash prizes, an interactive session with filmmaker Sasha Wolf (whose short film “Joe” was nominated for the Palm d’Or at the Cannes International Film Festival in 1997), and an altogether improved fest."
