The Show Low Film Festival, located in the beautiful White Mountains of Arizona, is a unique event that brings together the best in independent filmmaking. The festival’s dedication to promoting outstanding artistic works is reflected in its selection process, where only the top 100 award winners are accepted.

This ensures a vibrant and engaged festival experience, emphasizing the importance of filmmaker participation.

Nestled in the cool pines and fresh mountain air of the White Mountains, the festival offers a unique backdrop for film screenings. All selected award-winning films are presented in a state-of-the-art theater, creating an immersive and memorable viewing experience. The festival provides an array of perks for attending filmmakers.

Furthermore, the Show Low Film Festival offers a series of free and optional industry workshops covering various aspects of filmmaking. These workshops provide an invaluable opportunity for filmmakers to learn from industry experts, discuss their projects, and network with fellow creatives.

“La Lucha: Getting Schooled in America” emerged as a standout in the festival’s competition, receiving recognition for its impactful storytelling and direction. The awards, Best Documentary Feature and Best Director, highlight the film’s dedication to shedding light on critical issues within the American education system.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to the Show Low Film Festival for their recognition and support of independent filmmaking. This honor further inspires us to continue our mission of bringing important stories to the forefront through the power of documentary filmmaking.

As we celebrate these wins, we also look forward to sharing our documentary with audiences worldwide. “La Lucha: Getting Schooled in America” serves as a powerful testament to the resilience and determination of at-risk youth striving for a better education and future.
