Lights, Camera, Holmdel!

The 15th Annual Holmdel High School Film Festival will be Friday, April 27 at 7 p.m. Admission is free.


Grab your popcorn and come enjoy an evening of innovative movie-making at the 15th Annual Holmdel High School Film Festival, this Friday, April 27. Screenings will begin at 7:00 p.m. in the High School auditorium, 36 Crawfords Corner Road in Holmdel.  Admission is free.  

The films have been produced by students in the Television Production program at the High School, led by teacher David Kaiserman. This year, 12 student-directed entries are vying for one of six awards: 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place, Honorable Mention, the Roger Benedict Award of Excellence, and the coveted People’s Choice Award, said Kaiserman. 

Approximately 45 students are involved in bringing the Festival to the stage. Film genres include Horror, Drama, Experimental, Comedy, Music Video, and Documentary categories.

The next Scorsese or Tarantino may be budding in the HHS video & film department.  You'll want to be able to say you "knew them when...."

It is great to see students working hard and having fun while swooning us with amazing stories. I have had the pleasure off attending previous festivals and so far they have all been great, maybe a tad to long, but overall spectacular! My child's friends in the Holmdel TV Society have told me that this year's should be one of the best! I am curious to see what the documentary is about!

The Kids do a great job every year. Once again this year we will be presenting the "Roger Benedict Award of Film Making Excellence" to a deserving HS Filmmaker. This award is in honor of Roger Benedict who taught at Holmdel for 37 years. This award was started five years ago and we continue the tradition to remind students each year what he did for Holmdel Students bringing a Film and TV Program to our school. - One of the first in the state. The award is for a 3 minute film that depicts the life of a Holmdel Student. David Kaiserman has picked up where Roger left off when he retired three years ago. David has built on the foundation making the program even stronger. Mr. Kaiserman has pushed the students to new heights. We hope he continues at Holmdel High School for many years, we are lucky to have such a dedicated teacher. The Holmdel Creative Arts Association will be providing free Popcorn courtesy of the Aberdeen Movie Theater. So come out and enjoy a fun night - all for FREE!

The Film Fest was another great success. The entries were all worthy of an award. Congrats to the talented Mr. Kaiserman and his creative students. It's programs like this that give recognition to students of all level and opportunities for parents to be proud.
