Student Selects Latest News

Update: Entry Deadline Is Now April 4!

Need more time on your film?  No problem!

The entry deadline for Student Selects has been pushed back to April 4!

That's still pretty soon, so hurry!  We can't wait to see what you come up with! 

Remember, if you are a graduating senior, you can apply for a Thea Foundation Scholarship with your entry!  Just be sure to fill out and send a Young Filmmakers Scholarship Form (found under the "How To Enter" tab) along with your film.  Click on the "Scholarship Information" tab above for more details. 

We're working hard to make sure this year's Student Selects competition is the most dynamic yet, BUT we can't do that without something very important...YOUR FILMS!!!

We're proud to introduce our new e-submission process.  This is something we hope will make things a little bit easier on all of us.  Basically, there will be no need to burn a DVD or print out submission forms.  You can just send us the files straight from your computer!

Click on the "How To Enter" tab at the top of the homepage and read the instructions posted there.  Remember, if you are submitting electronically, make sure the file for your film (.mov or .mp4 preferred) is labeled with the title of your film, your name and the name of your school.  This will help us keep all of our entries organized!

And of course, if you prefer to send us a DVD instead, you can still do that!  Just make sure you print out the proper submission forms (found by clicking on the "How To Enter" tab), fill them out and send with a properly labeled DVD (title of film, student's name and school) to:

Once again, the new entry deadline is April 4.  If you have any questions, you can email Casey at or call 501-682-4190. 

Hope everybody has an awesome Spring Break!
