The students of Campbell City Schools produced two films this year for the annual Friends4Friends Film Festival titled “Give Him the Hint” and “Shattered”. On September 22nd at the DeYor Performing Arts Center the Students represented the community incredibly well. Madeline Rosile, High School student and Luke Collins, Middle School student were each awarded best actor and actress. The Middle School team received the highest honor for best film titled “Give Him the Hint”.
"The Friends4Friends Film Festival is a great opportunity for young people in our area to showcase their artistic talents while also addressing important social issues in a meaningful way,” said Senator Joe Schiavoni (D-Boardman). “Students at Campbell Memorial Middle School can be proud of their outstanding work.”
“Receiving the best video award is an incredible honor for our school and the Campbell City School District,” stated James Klingensmith, Principal. “We were the only middle school to produce a video and compete against high school students. Our young adults demonstrated how talented and mature they are to successfully complete such a task. I have no doubt they will continue to shine in future academic endeavours.”
The film festival highlights student leadership and their willingness to address difficult topics presented to school aged students common in all districts across the county, state and nation. The students’ films have been viewed throughout the country, even internationally. Both videos can be seen on YouTube.
