2006 Best Picture Category, 5th Annual Mabry Film Festival
Every year we have a distinguished panel of judges, many of whom work in the communications and media industry in television, cable, radio, and film. During this year's judging I had the opportunity to sit next to the Operations Manager for Georgia Public Broadcasting. After, what turned out to be, the winning movie in the Best Picture Category was played, she turned to me and said emphatically, "Dr. Tyson, that movie is excellent! It is every bit as good as any professional work that has ever been submitted to me to be considered for airing on GPB!" What a compliment to the fine work of these 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students. Several times throughout the judging I heard comments about how deeply moving and powerful the movies were this year. I couldn't be any more proud of our students.
