Deadline has been extended to April 7th! The Evergreen Student Film Festival is hosting the second annual student film competition dedicated to screening work created by students enrolled in elementary, middle and high school in the greater Denver area. We are bringing together a community of filmmakers who share the common goal of education and artistic expression. Judging will be aimed toward creating a rich pallet of unique perspectives thereby exposing our audience to new concepts, stories, and people. Our award program will provide a prize to the filmmaker in each age category that creates the best film as decided by our jury panel. Most importantly the festival will give talented students a sounding board from which to be heard and motivate them to further delve into their craft.
Only 1 film can be submitted per student. Submissions must be approved by a sponsoring teacher at the entrant's school. If home schooled, submission must be approved by a parent. Films must be no longer than three minutes.
Films must include completely original material shot and edited by the student or students. Films that include material from other filmmakers, YouTube, etc. will not be accepted.
Eligible students must live in the greater Denver area.
