Local students on the red carpet will be the focus of paparazzi as the DeKalb Entertainment Commission (DEC) partners with the DeKalb County School District for the first annual, free “DeKalb Student Film Festival.”
Students will compete in three categories of films, beginner, intermediate, advanced. Judges (to be announced soon) from the film industry will serve on a panel evaluating the films. Awards will be distributed in each category for “Best of Show,” “Audience Choice” and one final “Overall Winner.”
The event is FREE and open to the public.
