LFHS New Media Wins the All-American High School Film Festival Film Challenge

The All-American High School Film Festival Complete Experience Film Contest is the most prestigious student film contest in the world. Over 100 schools participate each year from across the United States, Europe, Australia and Asia. Normally a 5-week contest that culminates with shooting in New York City for 3 days, this year schools had 4 weeks to come up with a team, a plan, and a story based on the prompt "For a Long Time."

Lake Forest High School's submission was a culmination of years of work by a talented senior class, along with support from New Media teacher, Mr. Steve Douglass, who encouraged students to develop their skills and pursue their dreams in film production.
