St Albans Film Festival - Get Involved

St Albans is to host is first ever Film Festival and there are only a few weeks left to enter as the deadline for entries to the festival is the end of Jan 2013. You don’t need to be based in Herts, anywhere is fine, UK and International entries already!
There are six prize winning categories and they will be awarding a prize to the best short film made by a school age child age 5 -15. The films can be dramatic films, animation or documentary and can be on any subject they like. They can be as short as 1min but no longer than 20mins.
They will be choosing the best films and screening them to a live audience at the festival March 8th – 10th and they will invite the short-listed film-makers to take part. One will win the cash prize. We have lots of press covering the festival so it will be great for the students and schools involved. They have films submitted already from schools and also from individual children. It’s just £5 to enter a film. There will be lots to take part in alongside the screenings including workshops, talks and events throughout the festival.
If you would like to find out more you can see their website & here is a lovely promo film they made to inspire children to make films: YouTube
