Wilson Bryant, a Brophy senior, has taken the top prize for adventure and travel films in this year's All-American High School Film Festival with his entry, "Que Viva El Salvador." The festival is the largest youth film festival in the world. High school filmmakers submit in a number of categories, including adventure/travel, comedy, "micro-movies" and others.
This year, students submitted 2,500 films for consideration with 700 chosen to be screened at the AMC theater in Times Square. Wilson's film, which is based on his experience on the summer 2023 El Salvador immersion trip sponsored by Brophy's Office of Faith and Justice, was one of only five adventure and travel films screened.
Forty of the 700 films that were screened went on to be nominated for prizes by the Teen Indie Awards, with Wilson winning the Teen Indie Award for Best Adventure/Travel Film. Films nominated were from around the world, including the U.S., the United Kingdom, China, Korea and others. View Wilson's film below.
