Maine Student Film and Video Festival contest open

The Maine Student Film and Video Festival is seeking entries through June 1.

The free filmmaking contest, run by the nonprofit Maine Film Center, provides K-12 students with an opportunity to stretch their imaginations and test their filmmaking skills. All film genres are accepted including animation, documentary and narrative. The movies submitted to the festival are judged on the basis of originality, content, style and technique. Movies are reviewed by divisions: pre-teen (grades K-6 ), junior (grades 7-8) and senior (grades 9-12).

Finalists and winners will have their work shown on the screen of the Waterville Opera House during the Maine International Film Festival held in July.
