Savannah Arts Academy Students Fundraise to Attend All American High School Film Festival Competition

Published on: 9/16/2022

​​​Some talented Savannah Arts Academy students have two films selected for this year's All American High School Film Festival!  The student films were selected from over 2500 submissions for the best drama and comedy categories. 


The films were created in the school's Film and Television class over the last school year, with students doing everything from start to finish – including coming up with story ideas, writing the scripts, location scouting, casting, photography, sound, and editing.

The two films selected for the festival are a drama called “The Caddington Academy", and a comedy called “The Slip Up".  You can watch the films through the YouTube links below.  The students will be in competition against some of the top arts high schools in the nation and to have their films selected for the festival is a big accomplishment.  Winning filmmakers in each category of the festival are awarded scholarships and prizes to further their education in the film and broadcast industry.
