Student Filmmakers Shine at Sarasota Film Festival

Arts & Culture

Two Lee Middle School students are among filmmakers participating in the 23rd Annual Sarasota Film Festival. This year’s Parallel Universes student film contest encourages youth to tell a story about how much their lives changed because of the pandemic. In “Lee vs Corona,” a four-minute film by 8th grade student Liliana Torres, she interviews school administrators and teachers about school safety measures and how the year looks different. The end of her film focuses on the positive, in “Lee vs Corona, Lee always wins!” 6th grade eLearning student Taylor Schmitt created the short film, “2020: The Journey to 2021” with an animation creator. Using a calendar - the film reflects on how long the year feels, completing tasks, losing time and surviving through it all. Both students will be attending a screening of their films with educators Terri Rohde and Starloe Galletta.
