Deming High School students, Jared Trevizo and Victoria Chacon, were invited to speak at a Broadband and Technology panel at the New Mexico Rural Summit in Santa Fe on Friday, May 13.
The students represented the future of film as Grand Prize, Judges Choice winners of the Film Prize Junior New Mexico competition. The students won for their documentary, Estela en el Mar, about students who cross from Palomas, Mexico to attend school in Deming each day.
The Film Prize Foundation partnered with The Stagecoach Foundation to launch the inaugural contest this year in support of the burgeoning New Mexico film industry. The program teaches narrative storytelling, technical skills, film production and entrepreneurship.
