You could try starting a film club at your school, where you meet to watch movies and then discuss them. You could start a blog where you review films and tv shows, and possibly a youtube channel or podcast to go along with it. You could also join a local or school theater program and work in lighting/stage design/costuming/directing. Most states also have thespian programs and thespian festivals where you can compete in theater-related activities (including lighting/stage design/costuming/directing, not just acting or singing). This one would be a big commitment, but you could write and produce a small film to enter into a local film festival.
