A FilmAcademy360 project was recently featured in The Wayne Hometown News. The cover article described a student documentary film, “Deema and Amir”, detailing the story of Jewish and Arab children going to school together and breaking down barriers between the groups, and FilmAcademy360 students’ recent travels to Israel.

Melissa Goldfine, a senior at Wayne Hills High School and FilmAcademy360 student, helped edit 5 hours of raw footage into a compelling 20-minute exploration of learning acceptance and celebrating differences.

What I like most is being able to use a professional editing program. I like to be cooperative, confident and social. Those are my skills. And I like to tell stories. – Melissa Goldfine
