Now here at Alec and Nathan’s Incredible Pop-Culture Weblog, we may not necessarily be at the level yet where our promoting of an event or item can necessarily make a large difference; however, I feel a personal obligation to write a little something about the upcoming Downtown Bryan Film Festival in Bryan, Texas.
For about the past ten years, many exceptionally talented high-school students at A&M Consolidated High School in College Station, Texas have had the opportunity to be a part of that school’s excellent Audio-Video Production program (whose name was recently changed from the Media Technology program), which has given them a tremendous opportunity to learn about film and broadcasting and improve their skills in various communication-related fields. My personal obligation to promote this event not only extends from the fact that I was at one time a part of this program and have many close friends who were and still are in it, but also because I understand how important it is. Being a young filmmaker myself, I understand that while over the past few decades it has become increasingly easier to make films, the challenge of distributing them and getting them seen by a mass audience still remains, and opportunities such as this one are few and far between. That is why I am incredibly proud of my close personal friends Kent Juliff (who recently wrote a guest review on our site) and Madeline Packard for spearheading this effort and setting up the first ever Downtown Bryan Film Festival, in which alumni from the A&M Consolidated High School Audio-Video Production program will have the opportunity to showcase their recent work. Knowing many of these individuals myself, I am aware of how incredibly talented they are, especially for their age, and I strongly encourage any of our readers in the Bryan/College Station area to attend this event. It is an event that you really don’t want to miss. The promotional video, along with more detailed information about the festival, is posted below
The 1st Annual Downtown Bryan Film Festival will be held on July 21st (this Saturday) at 7:00 PM at the Palace Theatre, which is located at 105 S. Main Street in downtown Bryan, Texas, 77801. Admission is free and doors open at 6:30.
