The Walpole High School Film Festival was created in 2003 with the goal of exposing students to the production of independent digital films. All of the films featured in the Festival are made entirely by Walpole High School students. The goal of the Film Festival is to give the students the artistic avenue of film as an outlet for them to enhance their talents in screenwriting, film production, film directing, film editing, on-screen acting, music composition, and art direction. Each spring the festival sells out three shows in the 500-seat WHS auditorium. Additionally, the Red Carpet Event attracts hundreds of onlookers from the community, culminating in an awards ceremony. The event distinguishes itself from other student festivals as one of the first public school Film Festivals in the country. The Walpole Film Festival has been recognized in Principal Magazine and in the Marshall Memo as a model for creativity in the classroom and collaboration across the curriculum. Each year the films get better and better, and with the continued support of the community, 2017 promises to keep this tradition. Walpole High Film Festival
