Done in 60 seconds

In less time than it takes to watch a bad TV drama, the second annual Lumière Minute Movie Film Fest will show more than 50 student productions. Created in an effort to promote filmmaking as a learning tool at Hug High School, the festival now incorporates students from many local schools, producing films with a wide variety of subjects. The nominated movies will be screened starting at 7 p.m. May 23 in the Little Theater at Hug High School, where you can vote for your favorites. May 24, KTVN weatherman Mike Alger will emcee the Lumière Academy Awards Night. Then, on May 31, watch a screening of The Accountant, the 2002 Oscar-winning film in the Live Action Short Film category. Single-day tickets are $5 and three-day passes are $10. Last year, tickets sold out, so purchase tickets in advance by calling Paul McFarlane at 333-5300 ext. 228 or e-mailing pmcfarlane@washoe.k12.nv.us.
