Guild Hall is commemorating young East End filmmakers during a special screening and awards ceremony for their Student Film Competition on Sunday, March 22nd at 5 p.m.

"We would especially love to have the winning student filmmakers attend if possible, as we will be awarding prizes and certificates and showing their films on the big screen," Jennifer Brondo, General Manager-Associate for Theater Education at Guild Hall, said about the ceremony. "This event is free and anyone is invited to attend - the more the merrier!"

2015 marks the 12th year Guild Hall has held the Student Film Competition. Budding filmmakers from across the East End submit original video works which are screened by a committee of influential leaders in the film and television community on the East End. The competition is broken up into three age groups, elementary students for grades 2nd through 4th, elementary and middle school students for grades 5th through 8th, and high school students for grades 9th through 12th.

Top Student Film Competition entries for elementary students include first place for "Life" by John Barros, Colin Heilman, Atticus Muth, and Charlie Troy, second place for "Corgi" by Alyssa Brabant and Jameson Grant, and third place for "When Sophie Gets Angry" by Gabby Miller, Chloe Swickard, and Sophie Tucci. For elementary and middle school students, first place was awarded to "Paper Dolls" by Myla Dougherty, Marley Firsenbaum, Danielle Galeas, and Samantha Grabb, second place to "Fruit Punch" by Megan White, and third place to "The Making of the Opera" by Natasha Chavez and Evan Mendelman. For the final category, high school students, first place went to "There Will Be Pie" by Nick Pucci, second place to "Luging Sleep" by Sydney Walters and third place to "Car Troubles" by Gage Lynch.

All entries can be seen in Guild Hall's galleries as part of their Student Art Festival Part II, which is open through Sunday, April 19th.

Guild Hall is located at 158 Main Street in East Hampton. For more information, call 631-324-0806 or visit www.guildhall.org.
