What is the I.M.P.A.C.T. Film Festival?

Salisbury Media students are looking to repurpose education one frame at a time.

I.M.P.A.C.T. stands for Integrated Media Production — Arts, Communication, Technology. The students of Salisbury High School run the I.M.P.A.C.T. Film Festival with complete autonomy.

The mission of the I.M.P.A.C.T. Film Festival is to showcase independent student films as a legitimate art form; provide educational opportunities for participants across the region; encourage student-driven competition to build knowledge of the process of filmmaking and collaboration; and to offer the greater community a forum for the appreciation and critique of student art.
