Buzz Media Hosts Production Festival

         Galena Park High School's Buzz Media will be hosting an in-house Production Festival on Friday, March 4th from 1:45 - 2:30 PM. The festival will be held in the newly refurbished auditorium at Galena Park High School. They will be showing the students' entries to the internationally recognized South by Southwest Film Festival (SXSW) held in Austin, Texas from March 11 - 20. Three of the films shown are finalists at SXSW.

         Throughout the year, students in Buzz Media have produced, directed, filmed, and edited videos of all types, including sports and educational videos, and short films. The films submitted to the SXSW Film Festival were a final assignment to teach the students how to create media products with high entertainment values. The fact that three of their films are finalists in the SXSW Film Festival is quite an accomplishment. To honor that accomplishment, and to further enhance these students educational experience, Buzz Media is planning on taking the students involved in production of the films to the SXSW Film Festival. All proceeds from the Buzz Media Production Festival will go to help pay for these students to experience the exhilaration of a major media event of which they are now a part. Tickets will be sold at Galena Park High School. Ticket price is $4 if purchased in advance, $5 at the door.
