Glenoak Film Fest Opportunity

The 2012 GlenOak 5 Minute Film Festival is right around the corner.  We'd like to invite you and your students to enter the contest.  All the details are posted at the festival website.

There are several important changes this year that we hope will make the festival even better.

1)No Entry Fees - We're going to scale back a bit on prizes and trophies and we've decided to waive the fee. Students may submit as many entries as they'd like at no cost.
2)Specific Categories - students will select and compete in 3 categories.
3)2 weeks to complete movies - this year the contest will last for 2 weeks.  This should help more students complete their films and should ease conflicts for college students and avoid spring break and other issues that might arise.
4)Teachers - By request of several of our teachers - this year we'll feature films produced by teachers and staff members  - should be fun and I hope several of you will give it a shot.
5)Projects submitted to dvd.  This should help us avoid file compatibility issues which prevented us from playing one of the college submissions last year.

Contest will begin on January 30th when the prompts will be released on the web site and all films must be submitted before 6pm on February 10th.
