Binghamton, NY (PRWEB) June 2, 2006
See the winning videos from this year's festival on WSKG TV Friday night at 8pm. In an interview, Larry Kassan, longtime educator and director of special projects for Binghamton schools and festival founder, will also explain the origins of the festival and give a taste of what to expect in Friday's telecast.
Binghamton's own Rod Serling certainly knew the power of video. With teleplays he wrote for Playhouse 90 and imaginative series such as The Twilight Zone and Night Gallery, Serling proved the medium could not only entertain but also offer compelling social commentary.
A special screening and reception will be held at the Helen Foley Theatre on Friday, June 2, 2006 at 7:30 PM. WSKG Public Television will produce a one-hour television special featuring the winning videos. It will air at 8:00 PM and will be projected on the “big screen” immediately following the June 2nd reception.
