Call to Student Filmmakers From the White House!

Editor’s Note: We just received this call a couple of days ago with a short deadline for short films – February 2. Sorry we couldn’t post it sooner but this is the first we’ve heard of it …and the first time we’ve received a call to artists from the White House!! So, all you young filmmakers, make a 3 minute or shorter film over the weekend and submit it on Monday!! And by all means, let us know if your film is accepted so we can follow your journey through the 2015 White House Student Film Festival!

White House Call to Student Filmmakers for the White House Student Film FestivalAre you a student filmmaker with big ideas about the importance of service and giving back? Do you know a young person who is?

Then we’re glad you’re reading this, because we’re only accepting submissions for the White House Student Film Festival for one more week.

Here’s how it works:

Any K-12 U.S. student can submit a film that’s three minutes long or shorter. You can read more about the submission guidelines here.

We’ll feature the official selections on the White House website, and share them across the Internet on official White House accounts. And if you’re selected, you might even have the chance to attend the film festival yourself, at the White House.

Along with representatives from the American Film Institute and other White House staff, I’ll be taking a look at every submission we get — and last year, we got some great stuff. Take a look at the official selections of 2014:

So if you still want to submit a film, or you know someone who does, it’s time. Break out the lights, write a script, get your camera ready, and show us what you’ve got.

You can learn more and enter your submission here.

We can’t wait to see what you’ll make.
