Let's go to the movies
SYCAMORE – The main reason Shela Lahey started the Sycamore Film Festival two years ago was to encourage young filmmakers. The festival raises funds for college scholarships for students pursuing a career in the arts.
"It started because I wanted to do a student program at the high school," Lahey said. "I wanted to introduce student films and promote them. ...I love helping students any way I can because it's a tough business and it's really hard for students."
The third annual film fest will be held Friday, Oct. 11, at the DeKalb County Community Foundation in Sycamore.
The idea for the festival began in 2009, when Lahey showed a short feature she had produced at several film festivals. At the time, she was beginning research for a documentary she wanted to make about Sycamore.
