Massachusetts Children's Book Award Film Festival

Each spring, the CF 5th graders celebrate the Massachusetts Children’s Book Awards with a Film Festival. Small groups of 5th graders each make a “commercial” to persuade other CF students to read their books. Students are responsible for the creation of the entire video, including storyboarding, rehearsing,directing, acting, filming, and editing.  the 3rd and 4th graders are invited to the Film Fest, while CF staff present the awards as guest celebrities.

Students edit their own videos, including the soundtracks and special effects.
