The Oscars might be over, but movie making season is upon us — for local teens, anyway. The Pendragwn Youth Film Festival recently kicked off its inaugural year and is seeking entries from students ages 11 – 18 for their first-ever Festival to be held at the Atlas Performing Arts Center on May 15.
The aim of the experience is to excite kids about the arts. Created by the Pendragwn Film Foundation, PYFF seeks to contribute to society through the power of storytelling by helping talented youth grow as artists through film and video. Each applicant will receive a graded rubric with feedback from film industry professionals with comments that give the student constructive criticism about their film. Finalists will be screened at the Festival.
Applicants can submit films three to five minutes in length in the following categories: documentary, narrative, or music video via mail or email. Applicants may also submit a 30 second public service announcement in the super-short category. The submission deadline is April 15, 2011 and participation in PYFF is free.
Visit the Pendragwn Youth Film Festival website for complete details on submitting entries. More information about Pendragwn Productions and Pendragwn Film Foundation is also available through the website.
