April 30, 2013


April 30--BEAVERTON -- Beaverton School District's student film festival, Signal-to-Noise, starts May 9 at the Sunset Presbyterian Church.

The festival honors finalists across all grade levels and categories for short films, including animation, comedy, documentary, drama and others. A team of teachers will select winners in each category at the banquet from 6 to 9 p.m., said Scott Hacke, the director of the film festival.

Prizes include a limousine shuffle, shirts, a trophy and a mini tripod. Films have also been shown during Beaverton's summer outdoor movie series, Flicks by the Fountain.

The festival started at Beaverton's Arts & Communication Magnet Academy and expanded in 2005 to include the entire district. Many students submit their work to other local and national film festivals, Hacke said.
