The STRAND YOUTH FILM FEST is an opportunity for young people living in Midcoast Maine and surrounding areas to create and submit their own short films!

Entry deadline: October 31.

Awards and a public presentation of the films (virtual, or in-person if possible) in the fall of 2020. 

Teachers, educators, parents, and homeschoolers -- this filmmaking competition could be used as a curriculum tool. Strand Education Coordinator Brittany Parker is available to help plan a film project that can tie into any curriculum. Brittany can be contacted at [email protected]

PLEASE NOTE that films can be shot using an iPhone or iPad, and then edited using one of the apps suggested below.

Prizes will be awarded by a panel of judges consisting of local film professionals and Strand staff. The winners in each category (narrative, documentary, music, animation) will be awarded $75 each, and Best of Fest winners will take home $100. Additionally, winners will receive an official Strand Youth Film Fest Geiger Award. Winners will be selected for both Junior (grades 5-8) and Senior (grades 9-12) divisions.
