Ms. Amodeo’s 5th grade class won “Most Creative Film” at the Latin American Cinemateca of Los Angeles’ 9th Annual Film Festival on May 1, 2016. The film is titled “The Awakening” and the 5th grade students wrote, directed, and acted in the short 7 minute piece — all created on an iPad! All other 32 film entries in the Festival were created by Middle and High School. We were excited to have the students’ work accepted and amazed to also win a top honor!
