Film Contest – Cash prizes
Film Camp for Kids & Youth invites youth ages 11 to 25 years who reside in the tri-county region (Essex, Lambton, Kent Counties) to participate in “Celebrating Canada & Ontario – A Short Film Competition for Youth” taking place during National Youth Arts Week, May 1st to 7th, 2017. Thanks to a grant from the Ontario 150 Community Celebration Program there will be $5,000 in cash prizes awarded to aspiring filmmakers in the region. DEADLINE for submission has been extended to Friday, April 28th.
The film competition will require participants to submit short films themed on celebrating “some aspect” of Canada’s and Ontario’s culture, history, environment, future, innovation, becoming a new home, sports, art, tourism and more. All pre-screened (for quality and content) short films will be viewed publicly during National Youth Arts Week, judged in age groups based on public vote as well as professional adjudication.
Film Camp for Kids & Youth has offered year round programming in all aspects of filmmaking in Windsor-Essex since 2013. The camp expanded in 2015 thanks to a grant from Libro Credit Union, and today provides day and overnight camps to over 200 participants ages 8-18 years in multiple locations. Classes in writing, photography, acting, special effects, lighting, and more are included in programming offers. The camp also employs university and college film students to give them work experience in their field.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions. The short films submitted should range from one to 12 minutes and be individual or group projects.
