Annual Film Festival

The Film Festival is a chance to show off the creativity and talents of Boys & Girls Club members, Leading up to the event, each Club site writes, directs performs in and films their own short film in categories like comedy, drama and horror.

The process exposes youth to all aspects of movie production as they explore their own creativity and learn about digital media as a potential career path. At the festival we roll our the red carpet for members and their families, view all films and give awards to the most outstanding in each category.

This year, the Film Festival is sponsored by Nevada State Bank.
