Canyon Crest Academy Envision Cinema reels in a successful MiniCine Fest

Mini Cine Festival Award winners: Angela Melugin, Melanie An, Katie Sheng, Payton Rosen, Dominic Kowarick, Hayley Jones, Luke Williams, Tyler Jones, Quincy Smith, Daniel Tsukada and CCA Envision Cinema Coordinator Mark Raines

It was a sold out auditorium for the 7th annual Canyon Crest Academy Envision Cinema MiniCine Fest. Twenty films were showcased as part of the annual production. The 48-Hour Film Festival, as it’s also referenced, has grown in size every year, according to CCA Envision Cinema Coordinator Mark Raines.

“When it first started it was a really small event with a limited group of kids only open to students here at CCA and now it’s grown into something where students throughout the entire school district can participate in,” Raines said.

The two film festival categories included the Judges' Choice Award won by the film “The Dreamer” with Tyler Jones and Quincy Smith. The Audience Choice Award went to the film “The Final Component” with Melanie An, Angela Melugin and Katie Sheng.
