ISLAND ARTS SHOOT PROGRAM PREMIERING AT NIFF

SHOOT Teen Film Program

Newport International Film Festival will feature a sixty minute showing of SHOOT's student films. 2 New unreleased SHOOT films will be premiering at the festival, 'The B-4's' and ' Double or Nothing' as well as films made in prior SHOOT classes.

The SHOOT Teen Film Program is sponsored by Island Arts, The Wilcox Foundation and the Newport International Film Festival. The SHOOT Teen Film Program teaches teens the process of digital filmmaking by using a hands on approach. Using state of the art professional digital video cameras and post-production equipment teens learn how to write, film and edit their own film in 12 weeks. The film class is hosted at Video & Vision, 654 Thames Street in Newport, RI and taught by Newport Filmmaker Rocco Michaluk.

'Double or Nothing', which has been featured in The Newport Daily News and The Providence Journal, along with a selection of other short films made by teens, will be presented Saturday, June 7th at 10:30am at Opera House 2. The SHOOT Program will be showing the only films at the Newport International Film Festival made by teens for teens (and adults too!).

School is out and love is in the air as a pair of best friends, Jay and Matt, are about to finish their first year of high school without having had a single date in the new SHOOT film, 'Double or Nothing'. Jay, the more outgoing of the two, finally arranges a double date for the last day of school. Their dates, Kristen and Jamie, are also best friends, and the two most popular girls in school. This is the boys' dream come true and a wonderful way to kick off the summer.

'The B-4's' is a heart warming story about the fall and rise of Newport, RI's hottest jam band The B-4's. After years of practice the B-4's finally land their first big gig at the world famous Coffee House. Due to internal fighting within the group will they be able to pull it all together and make it to the show? Sit back and let the B-4's rock you.

Tickets to the SHOOT Teen Film Program are $10 and can be purchased at the NIFF Box office or at their official website:
