Viral Film Festival

Trying to spark some interest in school, Boy #3 and I visited the local vocational school for their open house. We were able to pick three classes to visit. Boy #3 picked the three he was interested in. The first two were total geek classes and I had no idea what the teacher was talking about or if they were even speaking English. The third class was a “let’s check it out” last minute choice. It was called Video Technology. The minute we walked into the class could see a noticeable change in Boy #3. He actually looked excited about school, it brought tears to my eyes.

Viral Film Festival is something for him to aspire to. The mission of the festival is to showcase the best national and international short films in narrative, animation, documentary and experimental categories. When the eyes light up in your kids it’s time for encouragement. They are going to be working the rest of their lives, they should be doing something they love.
