If you are a teenager with an interest in film, than don't miss this amazing opportunity. Last year, the Jewish Community Center held it's first Teen Film Festival, offering local teens the chance to compete and show- case their talent in film. This year the JCCTFF is accepting videos from high school stu- dents from both Seminole and Orange County. Local aspiring filmmakers who are eager to exhibit their work to the local community should contact the JCCTFF at 407-756-9123 orask their high school teachers. Students can submit films in for three differ- ent levels of awards in four different categories. There will be cash prizes and students are allowed to submit formally made films and videos. The Festival is run for teens and by teens; Adam Ben-Evi, Ryan Finnegan, and Jonathan Osteen have coordinated the festival. Pleased with last year's re- suits and even more excited about this year's, Ben-Evi says, "I'm particularly looking for- ward to seeing how the student's style of expression has changed and evolved from the films submitted last year." "We were very impressed last year with the skills and talent of film students in the local area," Jonathan Osteen says, Teen Film Festivai coordinators JONA THAN OSTEEN, (1) ADAM BEN.EVI, and RYAN FINNEGAN.

Straining to understand simple questions in French and Hebrew delivered by Mireille Hays, Jim Johnson and Dr. Ken Hanson, the English speaking gimel class at Con- gregation Bet Chaim in Casselberry experienced con- fusion similar to Jewish im- migrants at Ellis Island many years ago. Interpreters, Diane Zoock, and Steve Cohn assisted with documenting basic family data at the intake desk. Each "immigrant" took a vision test and a basic health exam, performed by Richard and Meril Salzburg and the citizen's exam monitored by Robin Monti, Rachael Grayand Lynn Edinger - some many times before given permission to enter the United States. Af- ter an hour of frustration and confusion mixed with humor- ous antics from the "inspec- tors," an after-action review led by Carol Cohn, revealed the success of the hour. The students responded with new insight; all were prac- tically exploding with thoughts and questions about how many of their great- grandparents entered the country that promised free- dom and opportunity. Mrs. Cohn gave the 12 - 15 year old girls and boys a sig- nificant history lesson cover- ing many details of the hard- ship and challenge our recent "Immigrant" WILLIAM GREEN at intake desk.
