Every single student film entered shows hard work, talent, creativity and promise, Casey Sanders, AETN producer and Little Rock Film Festival youth and education coordinator, said. I congratulate the students whose creations garnered them a scholarship and equally applaud each and every entrant for their effort and for participating in the rich and rewarding work of filmmaking.
To compete for scholarships, seniors had to guarantee that they were the sole producer of the selected category. Scholarships will be awarded to the students institution of choice, regardless of planned major, grade point average or test scores.
