Youth Flicks 

Break out your couture gown and view the work of a future Spielberg at the fifth-annual Lawrence High School Focus Film Festival. This Cannes Jr. features short films submitted from all over Kansas by high schoolers. Industry professionals judge the 11 categories, including drama, experimental and documentary. According to LHS teacher Jeff Kuhr, what started as simply "an opportunity to showcase student filmmaking in a public setting" has grown into a huge endeavor: More than 80 films were submitted last year. Catch a glimpse of young talent during a 3:30 p.m. public screening in Room 125 of Lawrence High School (1901 Louisiana in Lawrence). The winning films will be showcased at an awards ceremony at 1 p.m. Sunday at Liberty Hall (644 Massachusetts). Admission is free for both events. For more information, see room125productions.org.
Thu., April 29, 3:30 p.m.; Sun., May 2, 1 p.m., 2010
