    Levels' annual Film Festival is a showcase for original films and videos by students. Some are personal projects the filmmakers have brought in, and some are created at Levels, using our equipment and resources. The results are viewed by the public on a 40-foot-high screen right after our annual Levelspalooza in Great Neck's Village Green. Below are some of our past entries...

In this short film, Zach Lee and Solly Kasab take you on a journey to the not so distant future where sugar has been outlawed in
"The Sugar"

And here's a soon to be Levels classic by
Village School student Max Cruz:
"Oscar Wilde vs Varney the Vampire"

Busty Swift's spoof of spy films features
a suave (and strange) Master of Disguise.
Check it out here:

Busty Swift's hilarious "mockumentary" about an underdog who dreams of winning the World Hamboning Championship.

A quirky love story, conceived and directed by Emi Schaufeld, about a young romance that's not exactly what it appears to be.
(This film also helped get its director into NYU!)

Paul Ryder (l) and Jessica Schildkraut star in a film conceived and directed by Ava Szilagi. This partially improvised drama covered a year-long relationship between a teen musician and a teen filmmaker, from chance meeting to breakup. Features original songs by local musician Joe Sidney.

Fred Cohen directs and stars, in a chicken costume of his own creation, performing visual poultry puns to a rap song he wrote and performed with Seth Rosen and Crystal Estey. You can listen to "Chicken" right here: , or on our "Levels SuperJams" CD.

Robert DiGiovanni (l) and Krissi Lum star in this horror film, written and directed by Denysson Arboleda. It tells the tale of a haunted sweatshirt that drives those who wear it to murder. It's a sequel to Andrew Blum's 2004 film, MIRROR.

A documentary by Danielle Garcia that takes you backstage for the creation of a Levels musical theatre production, from casting, through rehearsal, to final performances. Do the ends justify the means? You be the judge.

This puppet film by Jake Plean and Michael Levinson deals with turtle and rabbit slackers on a trip to the supermarket. If you crossed The Muppet Show with Clerks, you might wind up with something like this.

Levels...we do that.
