Be part of the Short Film Competition
of the St. Louis Jewish Film Festival
Deadline Extended for Short Film Competition Letter of Intent to March 30
The St. Louis Jewish Film Festival announces its third Short Film Competition and is soliciting new and established filmmakers who want to participate. Students aged 6-8th grade through college and beyond are welcome, including a professional category.
We ask filmmakers to submit a short film, no more than five minutes in length, on the theme of Peace. This can be peace in school (perhaps an anti-bullying message) peace within our community, your own home or in the world as a whole. Filmmakers do not need to be Jewish to enter a film.
Finished films must be submitted by April 26, 2013 in order to be judged in time for the June, 2013 St. Louis Jewish Film Festival, where the winning films will be showcased.
The deadline for letters of intent (accompanied by a $10 entry fee)
has been extended to March 30.
