Great Prizes AND Fame? Students: Get Filming for the AIFF LAUNCH and PrideFlick Film Contests
What better way to make Christmas break fly by than charging up your smartphone, getting your posse together and making a movie? The Ashland Independent Film Festival is accepting films for their LAUNCH and PrideFlick film contests through January 15.
As long as the criteria is met, a $500 cash prize and inclusion in the 2016 Ashland Independent Film Festival await. The LAUNCH student film contest is open to youth in kindergarten through undergraduate college in Southern Oregon and Northern California. Films must be shorter than five minutes and can be about any topic, filmed in any style.
Or for a more specific challenge, the PridePrize category of LAUNCH is open to students in ninth grade through undergraduate college for films addressing the LGBTQ+ experience.
Entry is free and all entrants receive a pair of passes to the AIFF on April 7-11, 2016. Sounds like a win win. Check out the full listing of rules and submission guidelines at ashlandfilm.org.
