During the October 20th long weekend, 7 students from the Collingwood Film Club were busy with the intense ride known as Zoomfest, a film festival that challenges teams of students from all over BC to make a film within a 48 hour time limit.

The film – everything from the first line of the screenplay to the last edit of sound design – was created by Bryn Cowan, Harrison Fuller, Bella Hallam, Stefan Kowalski, Nikolai Osborn, Sian Shin, and Selina Zhou, while under the supervision of Mr Francis and Mr. Pimentel.
