The SPIFFY festival is set May 9 at the Gesa Power House Theatre in Walla Walla.
SPIFFY stands for Student Produced Independent Films For Youth. The Walla Walla event will feature about 40 films made by filmmakers under age 21, including some from Walla Walla. Food vendors also will be set up.
Festival admission is $12. Kids 14 and younger are admitted for free.
Dan Calzaretta, a teacher at Pioneer Middle School in Walla Walla, is the festival director.
“It is the only student film festival in Eastern Washington,” Calzaretta said. “One of the most important skills they learn is how to manage a long-term project with many moving parts. These skills will follow them to high school, college and a career.”
