Celebrating its 8th year, STAR Prep students hosted the annual STAR DANCE Youth Short Film Festival at The Pico on Friday, April 12th. Entirely student-run by STAR Prep students, young filmmakers from all over the world were chosen out of 450 submissions through Film Freeway. Best Direction, Cinematography, Editing, Sound, Animation, Documentary, Writing, International, and all around Best Film were viewed by an audience and awards were given to each winning contender. STAR Prep put its best foot forward at this event, complete with red carpet, step and repeat, and some great refreshments! Special guest Treva Etienne graced us with his presence to speak to the crowd about patience in the entertainment industry. Special thanks to instructor Sathya Miele and students Donovan Coleman and Shane Perel-Wertman for spearheading this event.
