Every year Mabry puts on our huge Annual Film Festival. Students work for months to create movies that compete to earn "Oscars" in various categories--just like the real Oscars. Everyone dresses up. We have the red carpet, pre-Oscars parties, and even the lights circling in the sky. The movies are shown to 1,000 people and then are put on television, on DVDs, and on the internet.
Training for team participants usually starts in November. Any student or group of Mabry students can submit a movie(s) for the competition in the Independent Film Category. Or, you can participate on your team's official entry to compete in all of the categories!
Since participation is completely voluntary, if you are interested in participating, be sure and let your teachers know! Your teachers will let you know all of the dates and requirements for submitting entries. The requirements for each entry are stringent, so be sure to talk with your teachers.
We have a whole section of our website, called mTV (for Mabry TV) dedicated to the work of our students. You can check out several of the movies that have been shown at the Film Festivals since 2003 by clicking here.
