EDUCATION CORNER ANNOUNCING SSOF WINNERS

Florida’s largest student film competition and award show, proudly announces this year’s class of winners. The star-studded event, live and in person for the first time since 2019, did not disappoint. The newly renovated Maltz Jupiter Theatre set the stage for the glamorous red carpet event.

 

Reality TV star and rapper Vanilla Ice and Oscar-nominated director Ted Melfi (Hidden Figures) were among the celebrity presenters, along with several local television personalities.

One highlight of the morning was the presentation of the Burt Reynolds Scholarship, named after the late actor who founded the old dinner theatre which opened in 1979. The award was presented by actress and award-winning documentary filmmaker Suzanne Niedland, a multi-award-winning film and television writer, producer, director, and cinematographer Frank Eberling, and award-winning veteran Aaron Wells whose work has garnered national honors including Addy, Aegis, Communicator, Telly and Vision Awards.

 

“This year, the Student Showcase of Films received hundreds of submissions from nearly 50 different schools across Florida,” said Michelle Hillery, Palm Beach County’s Deputy Film Commissioner and Executive Producer of the Student Showcase of Films. “Our judging panel of 50 industry professionals had a tough assignment choosing the finalists, and to be back doing our show live after two years of virtual shows was incredibly rewarding!”

 

More than $20,000 in scholarship money, along with customized signature trophies, were awarded. See all the winners as well as  the students who were awarded special recognition for their work at this years red carpet award show.  We salute all the finalists and the winners of the 27th Annual Student Showcase of Films.
