The documentary, “I WILL SOAR,” about the success of Atlantic High School’s football team recently captured the Best Director award at the Palm Beach Film Festival in Wellington.
“I WILL SOAR” is a documentary about the school’s football program and the success it has had both on and off the field.
“The Palm Beach Film Festival shined as one of the best we’ve attended and I was caught off-guard for best director,” Jane Swanko said. “Folks from Miami and all over Palm Beach County attended, which made it so special to receive the award in front of the many friends, family and the supporters of Atlantic’s football family.”
Fellow Eagles alumni Zack Ceci and Chris Touze attended the packed gala along with Atlantic’s three-star recruit, Marquis Lymon.
“I WILL SOAR” continues to enjoy great success in the film festival space, including 10 selections, two nominations, winning one gold and most recent, best director.
Director of photography and editor John Sturdy, together with the director, writer, and producer, Swanko, will head to Franklin, Tennessee for its International Film Festival.
