Media Arts Center San Diego Ushers a New Era FOR SAN DIEGO COUNTY OFFICE OF EDUCATION’S ANNUAL IVIE AWARDS
San Diego, CA. Media Arts Center San Diego has been chosen by San Diego County Office of Education to take reign of its annual student film competition, known as the Innovative Video in Education (iVIE) Awards. Started in 2001 to encourage and reward teachers who utilize video as a project-based learning tool in their classrooms, iVIE has grown into a major student video competition attracting hundreds of students each year from around the county. Through iVIE, hundreds of students each year use film and visual literacy to demonstrate their understanding of classroom concepts. This year’s 17th Annual iVIE Awards & Film Celebration will take place on June 3, 2017. Entries will be accepted up until April 2017.
“MACSD is honored that SDCOE has entrusted our organization with this one-of-a-kind event celebrating the best in San Diego County student filmmaking,” states Ethan van Thillo, Founder/Executive Director. Mr. van Thillo continues, “The iVIE Awards aligns perfectly with MACSD’s long history of promoting, celebrating and training young filmmakers; and we’re excited to see this important event continue to grow for many years into the future.”
“This is an exciting transition for iVIE,” said SDCOE Assistant Superintendent of Integrated Technology Services Karen Connaghan. “Media Arts Center’s stewardship of the program will allow iVIE to grow while still offering a pathway for K-12 teachers and students to use video to demonstrate and showcase their skills and abilities.”
