The show must go on! That’s right. Cue the title sequence for Canyons District’s 12th Annual Film Festival, a chance for aspiring videographers to vie for bragging rights as the next, up-and-coming Spike Lee, Martin Scorsese, or Jane Campion.
Back by popular demand, the Film Festival allows students and teachers to flex their creative muscle and show off their knowledge and skills through the art of filmmaking. Entries are being accepted online now through Tuesday, April 12, 2022.
There are four levels of competition: Elementary, Middle, High, and Teacher. Participants are welcome to submit films they have created for class projects or other competitions. The five categories are:
- Short Film (5 minutes or less)
- Documentary (5 minutes or less)
- Animation (3 minutes or less)
- Public Service Announcement (1 minute or less)
- Newscast (5 minutes or less)
There’s even a poster contest where students can try their hand at designing the poster to advertise next year’s festival.
All winning, nominated, and honorable mention films will be showcased on YouTube and celebrated at the festival’s Red Carpet Awards on April 28, 6 p.m. at Alta High School.
Links to the festival rules, and other helpful tips can be found on the Film Festival home page.
