WELCOME to the 2016 EUSD Virtual Film Festival!  We are so proud of our teachers and students who embarked into the wild world of cinematography in order to share their learning, ideas, experiences, and passion. Endless hours went into each of these informative student films.   And now, as they say at the movies … Sit back, and enjoy the show!


Eight of our fabulous schools entered their student-created films into this years 2016 Innovative Video in Education (iVIE) awards festival.  Combined, our students and teachers earned a total of seventeen nominations!  Congratulations to the amazing work that was completely developed and designed by all our film students!


At the iVIE Awards event held on April 23rd, five films were selected as the final winners and received a Sony HD camera along with their iVIE statue award.  Three of our EUSD student-created films were selected as state winners in the California Student Media Festival (CSMF) and will be honored on June 11th in Hollywood.  Below are the films that received awards during this 2015-2016 school year.
