Our Alaskan Stories 2017 Film Premiere

Thursday, November 16, 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm
Centennial Hall, Sitka

Celebrate the launch of a new series of fantastic films by Mt. Edgecumbe High School students Alyssa Afcan, Michael Martin, Chad Brown, Sierra Felts, and Andrea Cook. 

Since January, these students have been working with Hannah Guggenheim to learn about filmmaking - learning how to compose shots, conduct interviews, use film and audio gear, and edit footage. More importantly, they've been learning to tell their stories of home, family, culture, and community from across Alaska. 

Additional technical support and coaching for the program has been provided by Paul Fitzgibbon and Lee House. Check out the trailer online here.

Our Alaskan Stories is a program of the Island Institute, and this event is part of the Island Institute's Wild Language Festival. For more information about the Island Institute, visit www.iialaska.org.
