Calling all student filmmakers! It’s time to start planning for the 38th annual Maine Student Film Video Festival, featuring a $500 cash prize to the winning team. The festival is open to Maine residents 19 years of age and younger. Movies submitted are judged on the basis of originality, content, style, and technique, and are reviewed by divisions: pre-teen, (grades K-6 ), junior (grades 7-8) and senior (grades 9-12). All film genres are accepted and usually are entered from animation, documentary and narrative.
Each year finalists and winners’ movies are selected for screening at the festival’s Public Screening and Awards Presentation. This screening is held in conjunction with the Maine International Film Festival on July 18 in Waterville, ME. Finalists receive a full festival pass to the Maine International Film Festival, and winners in all divisions will receive trophies.
