The 38th annual Maine Student Film Video Festival is approaching and now’s the time for students to start planning that award winning entry! This year’s festival features a $500 MPBN Student Film Award, as well as trophies and certificates for winners and finalists.

One of the longest running student film festivals in the country, the MSFVF is open to Maine residents 19 years of age and younger currently in grades K-12. The submission deadline is June 1, 2015, and there is no entry fee to participate.

Student submissions are judged on the basis of originality, content, style, and technique, and are reviewed by the following divisions: pre-teen, (grades K-6), junior (grades 7-8) and senior (grades 9-12). For group productions, the age of the oldest authoring member of the group determines in which division the movie with be judged. There is no age limit for actors, documentary subjects, or musicians who may appear in the production. All film genres are accepted, including animation, documentary and narrative.

Each year the MSFVF selects award winners and finalists whose films are then screened at the festival’s Public Screening & Awards Presentation, which is held in conjunction with the Maine International Film Festival in Waterville. This year’s screening will be held on July 18, 2015 at 12:30 p.m. at the Waterville Opera House. Prizes include the $500 MPBN Student Film Award, a 1 year’s subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud with video editing software, including Adobe Photoshop, Adobe After Effects, and Adobe Premiere Pro, and full festival passes to the Maine International Film Festival. In addition, all finalists will receive certificates of achievement and winners in all divisions will receive trophies.
