2024 docfilmboot winners!

SIX TEAMS, SIX DOCUMENTARIES, SIX WEEKS! We challenged Orange High School film students to write, produce, shoot and edit six documentaries with the help of Cinema Ed mentors and Drew University students from Prof. Jeremy Blatter's Civic Media class. And they did it! Thank you to Drew University and Orange School District for making this year's DocFilmBoot a complete success! The films were presented at a Red Carpet Screening at Cinema Lab's The Village at SOPAC Theaters on March 25, 2024. Thank you also to Luke Parker Bowles and the Cinema Lab team for providing the space for these students and the community to see these documentaries on the big screen. Much appreciation to our industry judges, who also generously gave their time to watch and judge these films. The voting was very close - each film received at least one first or second place vote! Below are the final results. Enjoy!!
