The White House is looking for submissions to its third Student Film Festival. The theme is “The World I Want to Live In,” which is broad enough for interested student filmmakers (students in grades K-12) to tackle any number of themes. So if you were hoping the Festival would stick with its focus on works making the case for technology in schools, I think you could still fit under this year’s theme.
Films have to be uploaded to YouTube by 11:59 p.m. Eastern on July 15. The films can be no longer than three minutes, use no unauthorized content, and have been made since the beginning of the contest (March 24, 2015). There will be two rounds of judging, and Obama administration staff will make the decisions in collaboration with staff of the American Film Institute. Finalists will have their work shown at the White House and promoted through the White House internet presence.
