The President Wants YOU to Join the First Ever White House Student Film Festival
How cool would it be to have your very first film screening at the White House? Well, U.S. K-12 student filmmakers have the chance to receive the ultimate bragging rights by entering their short films into the first ever White House Student Film Festival, where the winner, yes, gets his/her film screened at none other than 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The contest is now open, so continue on to find out how to enter.
Again, the White House Student Film Festival is open only to students K-12 (all of us old fogies will have to wait for the White House Old Fogey Film Festival). This is a great chance for young filmmakers, who unfortunately miss out on most of these opportunities, to compete on a national stage and potentially receive a substantial amount of exposure.
As far as what the contest is looking for, here's a few words taken from its website that sum it all up:
Our schools are more high-tech than ever. There are laptops in nearly every classroom. You can take an online course on Japanese -- and then video chat with a kid from Japan. You can learn about geometry through an app on your iPad. So, what does it all mean?
