Submissions for 2020 Now Open
Submission call for the Still Voices Short Film Festival 2020 now open!
Teonna is unexpectedly suspended from school and is faced with figuring out what to do with a day on the streets of Washington, DC. Teonna encounters Malik, who is also out of school, and Sara, who left school because she saw more economic opportunity on the streets. The three set out for an adventure that takes them east of the Anacostia river. Created in collaboration with local high schoolers, East of the River It is an unflinching portrait of the education and lived experience of teenagers finding their way.
Hannah Logan Peterson completed her MFA in Film Directing from California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) in 2018. Her thesis film, East of the River was selected for the 2018 CalArts Film Directing Showcase at REDCAT theater in LA. Most recently, she worked with writer and director Sean Baker on The Florida Project, which had its world premiere at Cannes Director’s Fortnight and was acquired by A24.
