​The Annual Canyons District Film Festival is an opportunity for students and teachers to show their knowledge, skill, and creativity through the art of filmmaking.

This year is our 12th annual festival, and it promises to continue the tradition of student excellence we have seen year after year.
Students and teachers may enter films for competition in five categories: Short Film, Documentary, Animation, PSA, and Newscast. Students may also submit entries to our Film Festival poster contest.

There are four levels of competition: Elementary, Middle, High, and Teacher. Participants are welcome to choose any theme for their films and are welcome to submit films they have created for class projects or other competitions.

Entries are due April 12th, 2022. Nominees (the top three films in each category) will be announced on our website the week of April 18, 2022. A film festival awards night, featuring all nominated and honorable mention films, will be held on April 28th, 2022 and also broadcast on our CSD ISD YouTube channel.

The Film Festival awards night, where the top films will be announced, will take place on Thursday, April 28, 2022 at 6:00 pm at Alta High School and on our YouTube channel.

Nominees, administrators, teachers, friends, families, and anyone in the Canyons School District community are invited to join us for this celebration.
