Free Student Film Screening

Guild Hall’s 15th annual student film competition ceremony and screening will be held Thursday night at 6. The event is free and open to the public.

According to Jennifer Brondo, the general manager of Guild Hall’s John Drew Theater, 54 films were submitted by students enrolled in schools across the South Fork, including Springs, Hayground, Ross, Pierson, and Bridgehampton. Home-schooled students also submitted their work. Five judges watched all the films and chose the top three in each age group. All the winning movies will be screened at the ceremony.

In first through fourth grade, the winners were: “Ghost Haunting” by Ryder Patrowicz of the Hayground School, nabbing first place, followed by two films by Springs School students, “Dissolved Oxygen” (Andrew Farez) and “Estuary Energy” (Ella Menu). Fifth through eighth grade winners were “Dropped” by Hayground’s Phoenix Bliss, Dash Breen, and Leonardo Dougherty, in first place; in second place, “The Plastic Villains” by C.J. Baumrind, Salome Galindo, Tyler Hansen, Kevin Narvaez, and Aaron Segovia of Springs, and “Braille” by Hayground’s Charlie Troy and Owen Wood.

The high school winners were “A Loss of Innocence” by Christian Miller of the Ross School, “A Race Against Time” by Abigail Loos, who is home-schooled, and “Dear Phone” by Ross’s Augie Schultz.
