NFFTY (The National Film Festival for Talented Youth) is an opportunity for young filmmakers (ages 16-22) from all over to have their films screened here in Seattle at The Uptown Theater (NFFTY is part of SIFF, the Seattle International Film Festival.) It’s also the largest film festival for youth in the world.
Last year, as an aspiring filmmaker, I went to NFFTY for the first time. I was blown away. I was sitting in a theater with people my age that were doing things that I wanted to do. There were people in the theater who had worked on the short films we were about to watch.

These essays from Denny Middle School students will be up until the end of Winter Break at the Southwest, Delridge, High Point, or South Park branches. Schedule a visit soon to see these great expository essays about how to survive a zombie attack, the plight of elephants, why dead bodies are scary, and much much more. You can also take a look at some of the past pieces created by Denny Middle School writing at their blogs for 7th and 8th graders.
Warm Bodies is a great romantic/comedy movie. It’s a zombie movie that doesn’t contain many bloody scenes. I would definitely recommend this movie to people who are into rom-com movies. If you are into hardcore bloody and gruesome scenes, please do not watch this.
I would rate this movie 8/10 due to the fact it’s hilariously cute and isn’t boring.
