Burlingame Filmmaker Wins Clear The Air Film Fest

Freshman Jeffery Chen
Freshman Jeffery Chen is dedicated to environmental causes and to his love of filmmaking. Jeffery was able to put these together in his short film “The Plastic Bottle Controversy – Explained.”  This film, which outlines the problem with plastic bottles and how they contribute to water, earth and air pollution, was selected as Best High School Film and Best in Show at the Clear the Air Film Fest. The Clear The Air Film Fest showcases student-produced short films that address topics on air quality, environmental health and lung health in the community, with a goal of encouraging young people to use film as a medium to interpret and change the world around them. The festival’s mission is to inspire and empower students to become advocates for change in their own communities. Three other films by BHS filmmakers were selected as finalists in this festival, “The Cigarette” by Patrick Yldefonzo and Will Karp, and “Their Future” by Cris Yldefonzo, “CoZone” by Walter Zhao, Jack Phillips and Erick Liu. Jeffery’s film will also air at the San Francisco Green Film Festival on April 22. Jeffery's film is a must-see video on the impact of plastic bottles on our earth.
