A group from Pahokee is making its way to Utah for the Sundance Film Festival.

They're part of a documentary that was shot in western Palm Beach County last year called "The Send-Off."

The short film showcases students from Pahokee High as they get ready to go to prom.

The director of "The Send-Off" is from Texas and raised thousands of dollars to help send some of the folks in the film to Sundance with him.

The film festival features more than one hundred movies from around the world.
