Jamie Piggot’s fine arts class at Glenbrook School used some class time to help out with the sets for the recently filmed movie in Minden. The small feature film written and produced by area elementary students called “Pharoah’s Favorites” was shot at the Farm during spring break. The special film camp sponsored by the Robinson Film Center and Cultural Crossroads was part of this year’s 15th annual Spring Arts Festival.

The junior and seniors that make up the fine arts class created the backdrops with the help of local artists Chris Broussard and Larry Milford.

Festival goers were invited Friday, April 24th to the Farm to view the movie on the Farm’s outdoor movie screen. More than 200 people attended the premiere of the movie. The “Lights, Camera, Education” film camp was also funded by a grant from the Community Foundation, the Louisiana Division of the Arts, the La. Dept. of Culture Recreation and Tourism and the Shreveport Arts Council.
