Kent School District students to show off film-making skills May 19 at VisFest

Check out the film making and video game creation skills of students at the Kent School District's annual VisFest Film and Game Festival at 6 p.m. Thursday, May 19 at the Kent-Meridian High School Performing Arts Center.

The festival brings together education, film making, video game creation and the talents of many students from a variety of grades, according to the school district website.

Teams of students use 21st century technology to produce films based on a theme each year or design video games to showcase at the festival.

The theme for this year's festival is "Once Upon A Time..."

Through the process of producing these digital media products, all students from K-12 use research, communication, collaboration, creativity, high-level thinking and problem-solving skills. VisFest provides an opportunity for students to take an idea and turn it into reality.

Film screenings and the video game expo start at 6 p.m. at the Performing Arts Center. The awards ceremony begins at 7:45 p.m.

The event is free.
