On June 4, Trillium Lakelands District School Board (TLDSB) held their 12th Annual Student Film Fest. This event provides an avenue for budding filmmakers from schools across TLDSB to showcase their talents and creativity. With approximately 200 students in attendance, IE Weldon Secondary School (IEWSS) welcomed students from Dunsford District Elementary School (DDES), Bobcaygeon Public School (BPS), and Haliburton Highlands Secondary School (HHSS).
The Film Fest began with three charismatic students hosts, warming up the audience with a game show that allowed three audience members to “guess that film” from scenes that were recreated by IEWSS Media students.
