Congratulations to two teams of filmmakers from The Film School at SFUAD who recently took top honors at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta 2015 Film Festival contest. First Place honors went to Janett Solis and her team, and Alex Rennie and team took Third Place for their short film on the Balloon Fiesta.
The annual contest is open to all New Mexico film students at colleges and universities across the state, with the goal of promoting Balloon Fiesta, an annual festival showcasing nearly 500 hot air balloons from around the world. Twelve student teams from various schools competed this year.
The First Place film produced by Solis and team from The Film School at SFUAD will be featured on Comcast’s Video OnDemand as a prize; all films were also showcased during the Balloon Fiesta’s main stage on
Saturday, Oct. 10.
Job well done by both teams!
