JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A senior at Douglas Anderson School of the Arts recently had her film picked for a National Film Festival in the Northwest. She's our Student of the Week.
Tori Dailey is busy working on another film project at school. This is what she loves to do and in the Cinematic Arts Department at Douglas Anderson she gets to write, produce, direct and more.
"Tori Dailey is one of our premier students coming out of this department. She's a senior this year and working on 'The Kid' for her was one of her big experiences," said her Cinematic Arts Instructor Nicholas Serenati.
Her film was picked as the opening night film during the National Film Festival for Talented Youth in Seattle. It's the largest and most influential film festival for young filmmakers.
"It was amazing. I got to meet all these great filmmakers and they got to see my film. I got their feedback. It was interesting," said Tori.
She's about to graduate from high school but plans to continue her work in film.
"There are so many things you can do in film. It's not just all about big Hollywood films. There's so much going on," said Tori.
In the fall, Tori will attend New York University for film. She's one of the first students from the Cinematic Arts Department at Douglas Anderson to get accepted to NYU's TISH School for Film.
