Now in its 14th year, this program continues to expand. This year we had a record-breaking number of films submitted from all over the world, twice as many as last year! This showcase presents some of the finest films, 10 minutes or less, submitted in the elementary, middle and high school catego-ries. Cash prizes will be presented on Closing Night, Sunday, March 22 at the Fremont Theater. This year’s competition was judged by program coordinators, Grace Tucker and Tasia Trevino-Hill.
