The deadline to enter MSFVF is coming up! There’s still time for students to craft an entry for the 37th annual film competition, though. Youth in grades K-12 are eligible to enter, and all genres are welcome, including cinematic/narrative, animation, documentary, public service, among others.

Finalists and winners of the competition will be screened at the festival’s awards presentation on July 19, in collaboration with the Maine International Film Festival. This year’s grand prize winner will receive a one year subscription to Adobe’s Creative Cloud featuring full access to Photoshop, Premiere, and a number of other programs. The winner will also receive a full festival pass to MIFF.

The Maine Student Film and Video Festival offers a great opportunity for young filmmakers to present their work before an audience. Entries are evaluated by a panel of judges on originality, content, style, and technique, and finalists and winners are selected in three categories: pre-teen, (grades K-6), junior (grades 7-8), and senior (grades 9-12).

Entries should be no longer than 10 minutes, and are submitted via YouTube. There is no fee to enter. Full contest details can be found at
