The DeKalb County School District (DCSD)’s Student Film Festival will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 19, 6 to 8 p.m., at the AMC North DeKalb Theater, 2042 Lawrenceville Highway, Decatur.

Students from 15 DCSD high schools have been working hard to bring creative film works to life. They have written scripts, designed sets, mixed sound, and shot scenes—all to produce the best short film possible.

The DeKalb County community will have the opportunity to view the films before naming the best in the novice and advanced categories. In addition, professional judges from the film industry will be present to judge submissions before naming the best in the beginner, intermediate, and advanced categories.

Awards will be distributed in each category for “Best of Show,” “Audience Choice,” “Best Actor,” “Best Screenplay,” “Best Editing,” “Best Directing,” “Best Sound,” and one final “Overall Winner.”

Participating schools include Arabia Mountain, Cedar Grove, Chamblee Charter, Columbia, DeKalb High School of Technology South, DeKalb School of the Arts, Dunwoody, Lakeside, Miller Grove, Martin Luther King, Jr., McNair, Southwest DeKalb, Stephenson, Towers, and Tucker high schools.

The DCSD Film Festival will include a red carpet and other festivities. Admission is free. RSVPs are being accepted at eventbrite:, and For more information: 404-371-6341
