MS DAILY – Tuesday, September 5, 2017


  • Filmeisters, Filmmakers and Film Festivals (Repeat)

YIS will host the Kanto Plain Film Festival again this year, in May 2018. Details about the festival will follow, but we encourage students in Middle and High school to practice their filmmaking skills and enter the Festival.
We have also been made aware of a student Shakespeare Film Festival, soliciting student films with a Shakespeare theme, so if your work meets those criteria, your can double your festivities.
Interested filmmakers may have noticed that Filmeisters was not offered in the activities sign-up this season. This is because we are unsure of the format that will be of the most benefit to you and the projects you want to make.
If you are a HS student interested in making a film, or working on a film this year, please come to a meeting in M303 Tuesday at lunch.
If you are a MS student interested in making a film, or working on a film, please come to a meeting in M306 Thursday at lunch.
Based on your interest, we will decide whether or not to run Filmeisters, and what the best format will be to support your filmmaking. (Mr. Pitter)
