2nd Annual Student History Documentary Film Festival (NHD)

The Student History Documentary Film Festival is an online event where the 2020 Next Generation Angels Award Winners will be given the opportunity to present their prize-winning films in front of a national audience of students and educators from across the country through a livestreamed screening online event. Each film will be screened followed by a Q&A session moderated by the Library of Congress’ Mike Mashon, who directs the Moving Image Section at the Library of Congress Packard Campus for Audio Visual Conservation.

This event will give educators an opportunity to let their students learn first-hand how other students made high-quality historical documentaries and how documentary filmmaking can be a fun, engaging and active learning tool to enrich their understanding of American history. Students will get the chance to ask questions of the prize winners to understand their interests in documentary filmmaking and their creative process, ensuring that everyone participating gets a deeper appreciation of how important this art form is to education.
