The Columbia Jewish Film Festival provides meaningful, thought-provoking theatrical content with Jewish and inter-related themes while creating an enjoyable and exciting experience for all moviegoers. For the second straight year, we are inviting high school students to compete in a short film competition.
The short film competition is open to all high school students (grades 9-12) who are currently living in South Carolina. The film festival is seeking student filmmakers with diverse backgrounds and experiences. Filmmakers do not have to be Jewish to submit an entry. Films in any genre will be accepted, (e.g., fictional, documentary, news story format), using the theme Identity: It’s All About Me! Students are invited to explore this theme as a way to promote dialogue while addressing issues that are at the forefront of today’s headlines.
The winning films will be chosen by a panel of judges. Judging is based on creativity, overall quality and production, and execution of the film based on the theme Identity: It’s All About Me! Presentations of awards and screening of the winning films will be held at the Nickelodeon Theater in Columbia, SC on Sunday, November 6, 2016, at 3:00 pm.
Cash prizes will be awarded.
1st Prize is $500
2nd Prize is $300
3rd Prize is $200
