This Week: Student Work Chosen for National Film Festival

In January, we shared this story about senior Kasiem Walters leading his Academy classmates in creating films to submit to the If I Had a Trillion Dollars Film Festival. We just learned that two Academy films exploring the issues of gun violence and poverty have been chosen by the IHTD casino online jury as official selections! Kasiem and AJ Suleiman will travel to Washington, DC to premiere their films and take part in a Leadership Training and Lobby Day, which will help them further their efforts as community advocates.
