EDISON, NJ -- The Wardlaw+Hartridge School in Edison is proud to announce the Sixth Annual INIDE Film Festival, a joint faculty and student initiative seeking to raise awareness regarding current global issues. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, April 27 in the Berry Performing Arts Center. Fifth grade and Middle School red carpet and screening will begin at 2 p.m., with Upper School red carpet and screening to follow at 4:30 p.m.
The INDIE is a forum to showcase student work, while also allowing them artistic freedom, cultivating leadership skills, all through a global lens. We believe that in the future W+H will have the opportunity to expand on that promise, celebrating the arts at the local, state and inter-state level.
This year, our global theme was: "Who Am I?” Students were asked to consider and
reflect on the following: “We all have parts of ourselves that adhere to certain identities; race, gender, sexuality, class or ethnicity. What parts of yourself do you identify with the most? What you most proud of?”
Upper School students (grades 9-12) whose films were selected will have their pictures taken by members of the local NJ press. Industry professionals will attend the event and evaluate the films. To culminate the evening after the screening there will be a Q & A with the filmmakers. Three awards will be given on April 27: The Golden Ram, The Silver Ram and The Green Ram. All winners will receive two tickets to see a Broadway show. All information regarding the 2019 INDIE Film Festival can be found at indieschoolfilmfest.org.
