A Mountlake Terrace senior, Nick Terry, has recently had his film “Senior Prom” accepted in to the Seattle International Film Festival FutureWave program. We covered the film back in December when it premiered at the high school.
The Hawkeye, Mountlake Terrace High School’s newspaper, has more:
Guidelines to the program state that entered films must be no loner than 10 minutes, yet they made an exception to the rule for Terry’s 80-plus minute film.
SIFF is one of the largest, longest, and most prestigious film festivals in the world.
In 2009 13 youth films debuted in the festival, selected from more than 100 submissions.
SIFF’s mission is to create experiences that bring people together to discover extraordinary films from around the world. It is through the art of cinema that they foster a community that is more informed, aware and alive.
The festival will run from May 20 to June 13 at many locations throughout the Seattle area.
