About this Grantee

Students at The Community Schoolhouse, an alternative high school for students who have struggled in a traditional environment, learn to use video equipment to produce a student-driven film festival. To promote integrated learning, students master script writing, acting, computer skills, filmmaking technology, budgeting, and leadership. Groups of students produce original movies that showcase their individual talents and interests and are presented to the public in a film festival at a local movie theater.
