The Arkansas Educational Television Network's "Student Selects: A Young Filmmakers Showcase" is a program for kindergarten through 12th grade students, created to highlight the bright future of Arkansas's youngest filmmakers.

We encourage all types of submissions! Some categories include Documentary, Narrative (Short or full-length fiction film or sitcom, etc.), Animation (Hand-drawn, Claymation, Flash, Stop-Motion etc.) and Music Videos, but what you submit is only limited to your creativity and imagination.

Our main stipulation is that in all of the submissions students played key roles in the development and production of each project.

We are now accepting entries for Student Selects 2015; the entry deadline is Friday, March 27, 2015.

The program, now in its ninth year, premieres chosen films on AETN and on to extend the life of the films and allow people from across the state and beyond to access the work.

Additionally, AETN hosts youth filmmaking events and screenings at the Little Rock Film Festival, the Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival and the Spring Creek Festival.

If you know a student or are a student whose media project meets these criteria please submit it for consideration! For more information please contact Project Director Casey Sanders at 501-682-4190 or
