Good luck to all student filmmakers! 

We’re excited to announce the Burleson ISD Film Festival, a filmmaking contest that showcases students’ creativity and production talents. 

Everyone has a story to tell, and filmmaking can provide an outlet and a fun way to share ideas and creativity. Students with access to an iPhone, Android, Chromebook, iPad, tablet, or high-quality equipment have the tools to plan, shoot, and edit short films.
