Senior Leo Pfeifer traveled to New York the weekend of Oct. 10-11 to accept an award for his film “Stolen” at the All American High School Film Festival.

Once there, Pfeifer was joined by 2015 BHS graduate Coleman Andersen. Andersen and Pfeifer coproduced the film “Stolen,” which won an award for best drama.

“It was a really fulfilling experience to travel and see the film played and awarded,” Pfeifer said in a phone interview.

In addition, “Stolen” and another film from the program, “Clipped Wings,” were both nominated for best film.
