Westport turned into a mini Sundance on Saturday. As part of the Westport Youth Film Festival, 65 teen produced and directed films were being screened throughout the day at Toquet Hall and Town Hall. On Main Street, bands played live music and sponsors gave away goodies. Jack Curran, a sophomore at Weston High School, manned an information table set up to entice shoppers to attend a film or two. "We've had a great turnout so far. There's something for everyone," said Curran who plans to enter a film next year. The highlight of the day was the screening of "The Complex", an award winning short film by Alex Fjellberg Swerdlowe, a junior at Weston High School. The Westport Youth Film Festival is the only film festival in the U.S. that is for high school students and run by entirely by high school students.
