Six Harvard-Westlake student produced short films will be presented in this year’s international Citizen Jane Film Festival in Columbia, Missouri from Oct. 19to Oct. 21.

This is the third year students’ films will be shown in the festival, but this year had the most films accepted.

The films screening this year are “Voodoo Child” by Roz Naimi ’12 and Joe Kitaj ‘12, “Learn the Difference (A Righteous Conversations Project)” by Rebecca Hutman ’12, Adam Yaron ’16 and India Wilson (Crossroads School), “Love Our Families (A Righteous Conversations Project)” by Xochi Maberry-Gaulke ‘12, Anjoum Agrama (Marlborough School), “This PSA is Gay” by Patric Verrone ’13, George Khabbaz and Miranda Kasher, “Uncomposed” by Molly Cinnamon ’14, and “Empty House” by Xochi Maberry-Gaulke ’12 and Jamie Feiler ’12.

The Citizen Jane Film Festival has been featuring films made by women all over the world for the past five years. The goal of the festival is to bring together “female filmmakers from all over the world and in all stages of their careers helping to build a community of female filmmakers to share ideas and inspirations.”

“I’m really happy to have our work featured in a women’s festival because not a lot of girls sign up for the video art program here,” said Video Arts teacher Cheri Gaulke.
