Goodness what a year in Media Arts. We managed quite well thanks to the technology we have, and due to the student’s need for creative and cathartic expression. While far from the crackling energy and creative synergy typical of the group dynamics of Media Arts, students produced some outstanding videos on their own, at home. With district and community support, we were able to give cameras, computers, and all software needed for home production. ( Thank you Sonoma Valley Education Foundation and of course Sonoma International Film Festival ).

Two more weeks until Summer. SIFF ( Sonoma FIlm Fest ) SUMMERFEST is August 5-8, and their will be a student film screening once again – our 19th. The student screening will be open to the public and as always, free, with no tickets necessary. Come celebrate the student shorts: Better yet, buy a SIFF pass for the event and spend a few days on the Plaza, or in the vineyards watching lots of films.

Here is a short trailer – a montage of a few of the best of this year and last. We hope to see you this Summer.

Be well. Happy Summer
