October 2021 – Pelham, NYThe Picture House Regional Film Center (www.thepicturehouse.org) will roll out the red carpet for young filmmakers in TPH’s education programs. On October 23 at 10 a.m., students from the 2019/20 school year, summer of 2020, and summer of 2021 programs will have the opportunity to see their films on the big screen in TPH’s Main Hall.

The Student Showcase will include films made by students from Port Chester Park Avenue Elementary, Yonkers School 17 elementary, and the STEAM Academy in Mt. Vernon, campers in our Movie Making Camp and Documentary Intensive Camp for High School Students, and participants from TPH at Home, which brought film education to students virtually throughout 2020. The in-school programs were funded through generous support from Con Edison, Margaret and Brian Hinchcliffe, and the Westchester Community Foundation.

Francile Albiright, deputy director of The Picture House, said, “It’s a joy to bring student work back to the theater this year. We’re so proud of the films made by the students and campers from these programs, and we believe it’s an invaluable experience for them to see those films up on our big screen. It’s a great opportunity for them to celebrate their hard work and creativity with their families and a community of fellow student filmmakers.”

The Picture House offers workshops, camps, and classes throughout the year at our theater on Wolfs Lane. We also offer a variety of curriculum-driven, enrichment, and after school programs in partnership with elementary, middle, and high schools as well as community groups throughout lower Westchester.
