Righetti film fest headlines on campus
BY CAMILLIA LANHAM
More than 30 student films will make their debuts at the 15th annual Ernest Righetti High School Film Festival on May 10 and 11.
Music videos, dramas, and everything in between will be judged at the competition. The films run from 60 seconds to 15 minutes, and student filmmakers can enter up to two films in the competition.
Senior Nik Koyoma entered a film about how much high school will be missed and senior Erika Snell shows her passion for dance.
Film teacher Robert Garcia said in a press release that students have worked all year to perfect their films, and they learned that life in the film industry isn’t easy.
“The philosophy is that if the story isn’t any good, it doesn’t matter how many effects are in the film,” Garcia said in the release. “It will be forgotten.”
The festival runs at the Righetti campus, 941 E. Foster Road, Santa Maria, between 7 and 10 p.m. on both days. Admission is $8 for adults and $5 for students.
