Austin Film Festival Young Filmmakers Competition Call for Entries

My name is Audrey and Iím the assistant to the film programmer at the Austin Film Festival. I am posting a call for entries for our Young Filmmakers Competition, a showcase of youth filmmaking during our festival, October 18-25, 2012.

The competition is free to enter and open to youth filmmakers ages 13 to 18. Films must be under 12 minutes and will be judged based on narrative strength, strong characters and filmmaking skill. You can view the rest of the rules and submission guidelines here at

If you know of any talented young filmmakers that do have short films they would like to submit, know of any faculty/staff of film schools or other arts programs that would be able to pass this information on to their students, we would really appreciate your help. You can find more information, as well as the application for submission, here.

This particular competition is set apart from the rest of the competition of the festival, in order to allow as many great youth films as possible to be shown. The winning filmmaker will be notified prior to the Festival, and will receive two (2) Conference badges to the 2012 Austin Film Festival (for the filmmaker and a legal guardian*), two (2) tickets to the AFF Awards Luncheon (Oct. 20, 2012), an AFF Award and reimbursement (up to $500) of one round-trip airfare to Austin to attend the 2012 AFF; AFF will put the winner up in one room for two nightsí stay at an AFF host hotel during the Film Festival. It is a wonderful opportunity for any young filmmaker wishing to experience a film festival first-hand.

Thank you so much for your time and help, and please donít hesitate to contact us with any questions at:
