NESA 800 lb Gorilla Film Festival
Cinema North East celebrates 17 years of the 800 Lb. Film Festival in May 2014. This festival is held to feature the program's most heart pounding, jaw dropping, tear jerking, and laugh inducing films.
The festival will take place at Santikos Northwest Cinema located at 7600 IH-10 West San Antonio, TX 78230.
The festival name was derived when an individual at an awards ceremony noted the number of awards that cinema students were receiving at a particular competition. They referred to members of the program as the "eight-hundred pound gorilla in the room." The term had a certain ring to it and shortly after, the 800lb. Film Festival was born.
The North East School of the Arts is a gifted and talented program in the arts, structured as a magnet program on the campus of Robert E. Lee High School. NESA provides a rigorous academic environment, with a sequential, customized curriculum designed to encourage artistic excellence, integration with multiple arts disciplines, and authentic assessment. NESA students study daily with our unique staff of professional educators who are also working artists with significant training and experience in their individual disciplines. NESA students also participate in master classes and seminars with professional artists, and have multiple opportunities to showcase their talents.
These films are not rated by the MPAA but most movies would be rated G to PG-13.
Tickets will be available at the door and children under the age of 5 are free.
