Great news from TV and video production programs in our schools!

Congratulations to Jeremy VanDerKern of the Cheshire Career Center at Keene High School for being a recipient of an O'Toole Teacher Leadership Award from the Nellie Mae Education Foundation. The O’Toole Awards recognize public high school teachers who are advancing student-centered approaches to learning throughout New England. Jeremy and his students have been involved with our High School Short Film Festival through the years, and the program at C3TV continues to do great work in both the studio and in the community.

From the awards announcement:

Students in Jeremy’s courses engage in real-world learning by serving as producers and videographers for school board meetings, sporting events, concerts and workshops.

"Justice For All" free film screening and panel discussion focusing on veterans issues

We met with Dan Marcek of New Hampshire-based Vetflix recently to talk about the organization, its projects, and an upcoming screening of its short film, "Justice For All." The film and panel discussion will take place on September 19 at 5:30 p.m. at Red River Theatres in Concord.

From the filmmakers: "Our veterans deserve and need our support. 'Justice For All' is New Hampshire's first film about how our courts work with military veterans to meet their unique circumstances and needs through a 'Veterans Track.' A Veterans track is a special docket charged with hearing cases that involve veterans or service members, particularly those diagnosed with service-related illnesses. Come hear why this is a critical issue for New Hampshire!"

The screening is presented in partnership with the New Hampshire Justice Involved Veterans Task Force and Vetflix.

The program will feature a welcome address by Major General William Reddel, Adjutant General, NH National Guard. The panel will include the Honorable James Leary, Justice of 9th Circuit Court, Diane Levesque, VA Court Liaison, Trooper Seth Gahr, NH State Police, and Rob and Erin Kirby, a veteran family.

Although the event is free, seating is limited. Please pre-register at http://nhjusticeforall.eventbrite.com.

Sponsored by the law firm of Nixon, Vogelman, Barry, Slawsky & Simoneau and supported by the NH Department of Health and Human Services.
