On Thursday, April 26, the National Film Festival for Talented Youth (NFFTY) will start in Seattle, and many Ballard High School (BHS) students will see their films on the big screen. As we told you last month, half a dozen films made by BHS students will be featured.

The following BHS films were selected:

  • The film festival was started by a BHS alum, Jesse Harris. Harris, who started his film career at BHS at age 17. He’s 26 now, and has been putting on NFFTY for six years. It’s the largest youth film festival in the world, and over 200 films will be screened in Seattle between Thursday, April 26 and Sunday, April 29. For a full line-up of films, visit here.
