An upcoming film festival in suburban St. Louis will offer something a little bit different.

The filmmakers are all students in the Parkway School District. Their works will be shown April 27 at Logan College.

The shortest of the films are under a minute. One features a day in the life of a first-grader.

In another, a third-grader tells the story of bumping into a snake while bobbing in the water. He narrates the story while his pictures scroll across the screen.

High school students tackled more complex subjects in their films - everything from how to play the guitar to how to stop child abuse.
