Miami, May 20, 2016 – Miami Dade College’s (MDC) School of Entertainment & Design Technology will host the 2016 Overnight Success Student Film Competition, a showcase of films created by Miami-Dade County high school students over the past academic year. Students will be competing for Best Film, Best Cinematography, and Best Editing. The screening and awards ceremony will take place at 10 a.m., Tuesday, May 24, at MDC North Campus Conference Center.
The Overnight Success Student Film Competition is designed to highlight the quality work of local area high school students. Some of the schools participating in this year’s event include North Miami Beach High School, Alonzo and Tracy Mourning Senior High School, and Miami Lakes Educational Center. In addition, the Florida Film Institute will showcase work they have created with high school students from the area.
“This event is a logical connection for MDC and its School of Entertainment & Design Technology,” says Dr. Malou C. Harrison, North Campus’ president. “As the area’s largest program in film, television, and digital production, it is our honor to foster the creative growth of students in Miami-Dade County.”
While MDC and the School of Entertainment & Design Technology have hosted events for Miami-Dade County Public Schools (MDCPS) students in the past, the long term goal for this event is to make it a fixture in the community and to expand the event to include every high school in the county.
