Emma Wiseman, Chris Casey and David Burstein receive the prestigious Weston Kiwanis Club Youth Service Award.

Founders of the Westport Youth Film Festival the first festival was held in May of 2004 with the screening of 80 films at the Fairfield County Theater. Since then these three budding artists have continued to work tirelessly to generate interest and expand support from students and the community.

The event with support from the Westport Arts Center and other local charities is now believed to be the largest such youth film festival in the world. It is expected to grow in scope and stature in years to come as more students get involved and carry on the tradition and vision David Burstein, Emma Wiseman and Chris Casey have created. Weston Kiwanis congratulates the innovative spirit of these three outstanding Weston role models.
