The Doko Film Fest is about South Carolina high school age film makers stimulating and entertaining a live audience with their visual story telling art. It's a place where the film makers interact with the audience and other film makers to explain their film, and to receive reaction and comment on their work. At the end of the Film Fest, awards will go to the best film in each film category as well as the best Doko Film Fest film.
