SFF YouthFEST Hollywood Nights Student Cinema Showcase at Van Wezel really gave student filmmakers the chance to feel like superstars. Student actors, filmmakers, and producers alike got to stroll down the Red Carpet, even stopping in the middle for a photo-op. In what felt like a truly star-studded event, though the average age of attendee was well below mine, students got to experience what it was like to attend a film premiere, and see their work on the silver screen. The creativity and technical genius of the student films blew me away, and the mature plot lines surely did not disappoint. I found myself looking up to these youngsters. Bravo, young filmmakers!
