La Vie Theaters Rising Star Film Festival (RSfilmfest) was created to provide a premiere destination for talented DFW high school film and media students, to be recognized and rewarded on a grand stage, as their works are showcased to the Dallas community. “We wanted students to know that we hear their voices”, replies Festival Director, Shandell King, when asked why high school students, and the impact such a festival will have on students in the Dallas Fort Worth community. She continues, “Some high school film students shared with us their loss of creative motivation due to a lack of exposure, to celebrate their creative spirits. We’ve decided to answer the call. It is up to us as a community to pay attention to the needs of the next creative generation, or we’ll lose our kids. RSfilmfest provides a platform that encourages our youth, while fostering and mentoring their needs in a positive way. Everyone desires to be celebrated and raising the bar with elite experiences for high school students with this festival, will in turn encourage them to raise the bar on their level of work, while making them socially responsible with the content they put out there. If we ignore our youth today, they will find a way for their voices to be heard tomorrow, and that may not always be the right way”.
