The annual Ballard Film Festival is returning to Ballard High School this Friday, June 10.
The film festival, put together by the BHS Digital Filmmaking Program, is back after a two-year hiatus.
The film festival will include short comedies and dramas, advertisements, and documentaries—all produced by Ballard High students.
A number of the student films have recently been nominated for awards at the Northwest Regional Emmy Awards, including the following:
News Report/Light News Category: Ballard Band News Feature | Producers: Hazel Hartman ’25; Lena Cogan ’25; and Mateo Mercado ’25
Music Video Category: Oceans Away | Producers: Matthew Wilbur ’23; Siena Gorohoff ’22; and Remy Hirschfield-Rudy, ’23

Photography Category: Oceans Away | Cinematographers: Siena Gorohoff ’22; Matthew Wilbur, ’23; and Remy; Hirschfield-Rudy, ’23
Tickets for the festival are $10 for adults and $5 for students (cash only) and will be sold at the door. The film department is also selling t-shirts to help raise money for the film program for $20 (cash only). Funds raised will help provide current equipment and supplies for the film students, as well as help pay for field trip transportation and other costs.
