DOPPELGÄNGER FILM FESTIVAL 2022

 
On March 18th, Brahma Cinematics held its 13th annual Doppelgänger student film festival and was our first in-person presentation since 2019. DBHS students were ecstatic to share their passion and creativity with a live audience. This year we were also proud to collaborate with DBHS art teacher, Ms. Dizon, on our very first animation category, which had over ten submissions by students.
 
This year was considered to be one of the toughest years for judging by all accounts. Every student, at all grade levels, brought their ingenuity and talent for multiple submissions. That is why we are posting winners and nominees for each category.
 
Once again, REACH for Mental Health, honored our Eye Opener filmmakers with a $500 Scholarship winner. Below is a list of winners along with their submissions. Mr. Enriquez would like to thank all of the student filmmakers and the continued support DBHS staff.
