The 2014 LegacyQuest International Children’s Film and Video Festival was a resounding success, but it wouldn’t have been possible without the dedication and hard work of the teachers and students who participated. For students, the projects presented some real challenges. They had to tackle complex subjects, reduce them to their essentials, turn the material into cogent scripts and then tell a story through visuals. The result?
