Islip High School Video Production Students Receive Festival Honors thumbnail222709

Students enrolled in Islip High School’s video production class garnered major attention during the annual Long Island Media Arts Festival and accompanying Luminaries Awards ceremony, held on May 14 at Five Towns College in Dix Hills, with two of their self-produced and self-edited original films nominated and showcased during the festival, one of which took home a top prize.

The selected works were chosen from a large pool of contenders submitted by over 40 high schools. Only four films in each of four categories were nominated to be screened for consideration for awards. The Best Documentary category featured the two Islip pieces – a short documentary, “Islip Cosmetology Program Spotlight,” filmed, edited, and produced by Katelyn Wallace, and the category winner, “Online Awareness,” a public service announcement by Mackenna Eastwood, Carley Mullins and Wallace.

The Long Island Media Arts Festival invites students from across Long Island to showcase their talents in the areas of film, photography, 2D art and animation in a juried exhibition. The Luminaries celebrate the accomplishments of these artists, who are encouraged to push their creativity and skills to new levels. Family, friends, educators and patrons of the arts were invited to attend not only the May awards ceremony, but also other events throughout the festival, including an opening reception.
