Welcome to the Baltimore County Public Schools Film Expo. The BCPS Film Expo is a one day event designed to showcase the creative film work of BCPS high school students in an historic venue—the Senator Theater—and to create a broader collaboration between students throughout the county. The event is a joint collaboration between the BCPS administrative offices of Visual Arts, Digital Learning, and Career and Technology Education, and is made possible in part by the sponsorship of the Baltimore County Education Foundation. The Expo will feature work from students around the beltway in 5 different categories that will be juried by a panel of judges selecting top winners for each category which include Live-Action Narrative, Documentary, Animation, Experimental, and GIFs. If you are a student who would like to participate in this event or a teacher who would like to submit your student's work, please follow the links on this website for additional information on submission guidelines and visit the archive of video tutorials and web resources to help you produce your own film.

Special Thanks!

I like stop animation because it makes me think outside of the box.  We used the app O Snap- it’s cool because you snap or make a noise and it takes the picture for you.  I liked it because it kept me moving!

Stop-animation taught me a lot about being precise with taking pictures and moving the objects in a way to have it look just like a regular movie. Being precise and meticulous in Graphic Design is key and that's what stop animation helped me with."

"I'm excited about learning how to create a historical video, and gain the understanding of what made our world to be what it is today."

Sara Franks Western Tech

I really learned a lot creating the film about Henrietta Lacks. I learned how to conduct research, edit audio, edit video, and so much more!
