LaFayette HS to host film festival


By Alton Mitchell

The southeastern United States has become the hub of movie and television productions. While many shows and movies including those such as the Walking Dead and Black Panther have found their filming origins in neighboring Georgia, the talent of tomorrow may actually lie in the city of LaFayette and the works of tomorrows onscreen and offscreen stars will be displayed on Thursday evening in LaFayette.

LaFayette High School is set to hold its second annual film festival on Thursday March 22nd at 6:00 p.m. central time at LaFayette High School. The films being displayed at the film festival were all created, acted, and directed by students. The films on display will showcase a few local landmarks and may have even captured a resident or two in the background

The film festival was originally set to be held on Monday evening at 6:00 p.m. at the high school but was postponed due to the threat of unpredictable severe weather impacting the area on Monday night. Admission fees do apply, but offer discounts to elementary, middle, and high school students.
