Sponsorship Opportunities

NEW THIS YEAR! Directors (both youth and adult) can have their short films screened and possibly win prizes. We will kick off the event on Thursday night, screening of films from students 8th grade and younger. Friday night will feature high school filmmakers and Q and A from experts who are working in the industry. Saturday night, we will premiere our films from our amateur/professional adult category. Filmmakers will compete to see who can make the best short film in only 48 hours.
