Bronx students to take movie-making skills to the red carpet

THE BRONX - They're only in middle school, but some Bronx students are behind the making of four documentaries set to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Students at the Bronx Preparatory Charter School have been working with the Tribeca Film Institute for the past 10 weeks producing their films.

Paul Lovelace, a teaching artist with the institute, says the organization teams up with schools across the city and helps thousands of students develop their own films every year.

The films focus on cyberbullying, diabetes and park issues in The Bronx. The students' films will premiere at the festival April 28.
