The 2019 Young Filmmakers Project is on with entries due March 8!
Designed to foster media arts skills and bring attention to the next generation of South Carolina filmmakers, the Young Filmmakers Project is an annual statewide high school filmmaking competition hosted by Trident Technical College and the South Carolina Film Commission. All South Carolina high school students (grades 9-12), including public, private and home school students, are eligible to enter.
To participate, students must create a short film (two minutes max) telling a cinematic story in any genre, following the Creative Challenge and all rules.
Entries will be scored by a panel of independent judges based on the criteria described at the link above. Top Ten scorers will screen at a special screening program at The Nickelodeon Theater in Columbia, where winners will be announced. First Prize receives $500, Second Prize $300, and Third Prize $200.
Use your imagination! Be clever and creative! Most importantly, tell a story. South Carolina Young Filmmakers could win cash, prizes and a spot on the red carpet!
