MONTROSE, N.Y. -- Two Hendrick Hudson High School filmmakers won awards at the Hendrick Hudson Film Festival on Friday, May 8, at Hendrick Hudson High School.

Student Troy Peterson became the first Hen Hud filmmaker to win the Best Overall Film in the 13-year history of the Hendrick Hudson Film Festival. His film "The Usual" also won first place in the drama category.

Student Amy Jacobson also found herself on the podium by winning the Documentary category with her film "A Club Nobody Wants to Be In," based on dialysis treatment.

This is only the second time that Hen Hud filmmakers have won first place in two of the six categories at this event.

In addition to the success the Hen Hud Film Club had at this year’s festival, it also helped the Hen Hud chapter of Future Business Leaders of America raise $400 to send four members of the team to nationals.
