Light House Studio Shorts
For over 20 years, Light House Studio has helped Charlottesville youth tell their stories through film. With an award-winning Summer Film Academy and year-round partnerships with other local nonprofits, Light House works with hundreds of students every year. This one-hour program highlights some of the best student work of 2022, from elementary school through high school, from public health PSAs to zombie movies. Some of these projects have something important to say about our community; some of them have amazing special effects; all of them are from the distinct creative minds of Charlottesville’s young people.
Once again this year, the VAFF is proud to showcase the work of the students at Light House Studio in Charlottesville with a selection of short films.
