Five-Minute Film Festival Entries

Festival LogoThis year, SCOE hosted its fifth annual Five-Minute Film Festival. This was an opportunity for K-12 students to demonstrate learning in a 21st century context and showcase their work in front of a community audience. To participate, students created short videos (up to five-minutes long) on the theme of “Voice” and submitted them to SCOE for judging by a celebrity panel. The top 15 films debuted at the Festival on April 8.

Below are the films that received a special recognition at the film festival.
