This was an amazing year at the Shanghai Student Film Festival  - our headliners included the head of Dreamworks Asia, Olivier Staphylas,  Cinematographer Rainerio C. Yamson II, Finding Hillywood's Director Leah Washowski and Editor Todd Soliday, and producer Emmanuel Benbihy who offered our students an opportunity to work on their own student edition of Shanghai, I Love You.  Students whose films are selected will be able to work with professionals currently involved in the actual production.

Our Shanghai American School students also claimed many of the awards of the evening - including the following fantastic films.  Even the ones that weren't shown were fantastic. I couldn't be prouder of my students.

For some reason, I can't embed links from our festival's Tudou account, so here are some links to folow!
