Earlier this month, the Seattle International Film Festival branched out, and hosted an Issaquah International Film Festival in the Issaquah High School theater.
The event was meant to broaden SIFF’s normal audience and increase attendance among high school students. To help with that, the festival was accompanied by a daylong filmmaking challenge, in which the video production class (I-Vision) at IHS made short films about the same topic.
The challenge was a success. The movies made by the I-Vision students were imaginative and well-made, and were broadcast to the entire school over the next week, through the I-Vision news program. Unfortunately, they did little to help the festival itself.
