Career and technical education—or CTE—are programs designed to provide students with a combination of academic and technical skills, and hands-on training, to prepare them for future careers. Such programs are an important part of the educational landscape and are offered at both the high school and college levels.
Wilson's First Annual Film Festival 2021-22
This body of work reflects the vision and voice of our Wilson Video Production students. This collection of short films, created throughout the 2021-22 school year, is all original content created by first and second year students, exploring the themes of Beauty and Resilience.
We are deeply grateful to the CTE Department, Teaching Assistant Joceline Castaneda, Dr. Verbera, our Wilson Vice Principals, teachers, staff, SPED community, Guest Artists John Cantu, Justin Huen, Gabriela Lopez de Dennis, Mobolaji Olambiwonnu, Fanny Grande, Michelle, Leon, Chloe Taylor, and Carla Vega, Dr. Hackel and Cal State LA Department of Television, Film, and Media Studies, and Yuan Kai (Kevin) Yang for his extraordinary contributions as an editor/filmmaker.
We provide stage and space for students to tell their powerful and important stories while learning real-world filmmaking skills.
