“Film Fest: We Could Do This in Sanford” – A Documentary about the LYSFF!

We were very honored when Full Sail student David Kuskie approached us during the 2012 festival and asked if he could bring in his crew (fellow Full Sail students) and create a short documentary for their class.  Throughout the festival weekend they filmed our activities and then interviewed us.  We had no idea how it would turn out, but knew we were in good hands with David.  He and his crew really did it right and we are thrilled with the final cut!  What a great way to show people around the world what we’re doing in Sanford!

Below you’ll find a synopsis of the film and previous and upcoming screenings.  And be sure to visit the film’s website and Facebook page!
