Through the City is the other local film. Autumn Grounds is the screenwriter, director and producer. Knight Vision Productions with Robin Holk submitted the finalist film that was partially shot at a production at Clear Falls High School. Local actor Tyler Perez, a 2015 Clear Falls High School graduate is the driving force in this music video.

This documentary follows the qualifying standards of a group of young women competing for a place on the famous Texas Kilgore College Rangerettes. Nine Rangerettes will be at the screening in full uniform for autographs and photos. The film will begin Saturday, September 12 at 9 a.m.
