Based on the overwhelming number of narratives submitted from PSUSD high schools, Digicom announced the Digicom X High School Film Festival, a new festival aimed specifically at narrative films created by high school students. Digicom X will take place at the Camelot Theatre in Palm Springs in June, where students will have their films shown on the big screen.
