Some Arkansas students got to see their hard work play on the big screen at the festival on Tuesday.
50 high school students from around the state, spent last week creating short films at the Inclusion Films camp.
They worked with the filmmaker Joey Travolta, who founded Inclusion Films, a production company that teaches filmmaking to people with developmental disabilities.
The showing included three short films made by the students and one documentary made by the Inclusion Films team that showcased last week’s camp experience.
“That’s why this film that we’re doing is so important. It shows that we’re doing something of value and it’s one of the feature films at the film festival. So it’s really exciting,” Travolta says.
In addition to hosting workshops across the country, Inclusion Films has five production studios throughout California.
