Second annual film festival showcases talent across DCSD

CASTLE ROCK-- The Douglas County School District (DCSD) held the second annual "Dougies" on Wednesday, April 27, a district-wide student film festival. Produced by DCSD's Community Relations department, students from all over DCSD submitted short films, news and sports coverage, documentaries, animated films, music videos and more.



75 finalists had their films and videos screened at the AMC Movie Theater in Castle Rock. 235 students, family members and teachers were in attendance for the event.


DCSD's stellar media teachers encouraged their students to submit their work, helping to generate the large participation and turnout.



Rock Canyon High School walked away with the most awards for the evening, with seven total.


Mountain Vista High School won Best in Show for a music video called "Northern Wind."


Elementary school students were involved too! Mammoth Heights Elementary students produced a short film called "A Day in the Life," imagined journal entries of historical figures, and Roxborough students produced PSA's and their one hundreth newscast.


"Dougies" were handed out to students at the end of the night for the winners in each category, and a Canon camera was given to Mountain Vista for winning Best in Show.
