Five-Minute Film Festival Entries

Festival LogoThis year, SCOE hosted a new student event known as the 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 “Growth” and submitted them to a SCOE for judging by a celebrity panel. The top 15 films debuted at the Festival on March 16. See #sonoma5 on Twitter and SCOE’s News Release for more information above the event and the three films earning special recognition.

All 110 films submitted are shown below. The top 15 appear first, followed by 95 other entries organized alphabetically by title. You can also use the Search box, above right, to search for a specific film.
