Mac Cinematic Arts Film Fest 2022

The McCallum Cinematic Arts program is excited to share our best student works of the school year. After a year or more at home, our filmmakers have been eager to tell their stories. Many film genres will be represented including Expressionism, Surrealism, and music videos.

Attendees will also see screenings of four of our student films that have won a number of prestigious awards (see below). We hope you will join us on Sunday, May 15th as we enjoy the work of the next generation of filmmakers.

Students in Mac AV classes will receive a badge that provides one free entry.
