New England Khalsa School Film Screening And Awards Night

Press Release
04/20/2017

The New England Sikh Study Circle (NESSC) is the oldest Sikh Institution in New England and is based out of Milford, MA. On April 29, 2017, they will be screening four student films at Hopkinton High School in association with Film Neev, a film foundation for kids. Producing these films allowed the students of the New England Khalsa School, aged (8-17), to be creative while expressing the core values and beliefs of Sikhism: one God, gender and race equality, honesty, hard work, and universal community. For months, they have been involved in every step of the process, all the way from writing the screenplay, to actively filming the movies, to making edits and polishing the films for screening. These short films their commitment to teaching others about their faith, in addition to an incredible level of talent for media production.

The students were lucky to have the mentorship and creative guidance of Harbaldeep Singh, a new generation leader in the media industry with an extensive business, technology, and film production background. Harbaldeep received his training from the New York Film 

​Academy (NYFA)​
 and won an Emmy in 2010 for his invention in Media Technology. For many years, he had aspired to use his expertise in films and filmmaking to help educate audiences worldwide about Sikhs and Sikhism, especially since Sikhs are routinely the targets of hate crimes and violence.

Working with these dedicated students provided the perfect opportunity for Harbaldeep to explore this goal, in addition to train the next generation to become more active in utilizing the media to their advantage. There are already plans to incorporate this film training into the future of the Khalsa School, starting as soon as this fall. One of the senior administrators of the school praised the program, saying that “[they] hope to continue this tradition of using media as a means to spread the word of our Gurus in the coming years.”

The screening of these short films will be followed by a celebration and recognition of the students’ commitment and hard work over the past year. Reminiscent of the Oscars Award Night, the dress code will be formal and the event will include an award ceremony with live voting for categories such as best movie, best actor, and best actress.

Admission to the screening is free, but there is a suggested tax deductible donation of $25 per family that you can donate at the door or to the organizers at the NESSC in Milford, MA. All proceeds from the event will go towards the construction of the new Gurdwara Sahib opening in Westborough, MA later this year.
