AETN accepting student film showcase entries through april 1

Student films eligible for scholarships, historic film prize, broadcast, film festival screenings

AETN is accepting entries for "Student Selects: A Young Filmmakers Showcase," which highlights the creativity and talent of the state's young filmmaking/media students. Entries must be submitted electronically or postmarked by Friday, April 1, and winners will be announced in May.

Now in its 10th year, "Student Selects" is an annual event that grants these future filmmakers the opportunity to submit their film and video handiwork for possible broadcast on AETN, streaming on aetn.org, and screening at the Young Fimmakers Showcase in May and the Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival (HSDFF) in October.

High school seniors who submit films to AETN's "Student Selects" may also compete for $10,000 in college scholarships from the THEA Foundation. THEA awards four $2,500 Young Filmmaker Scholarships to graduating seniors who enter and qualify. Categories include: screenwriting, directing, cinematography and editing. This THEA scholarship competition is unique in that it is open to students who attend public, private, charter or home schools, as well as those who have completed their GED. Scholarships will be awarded to the student's institution of choice, regardless of planned major, GPA or test scores.

Additionally, in partnership with the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program and the Arkansas Humanities Council, ninth through 12th grade students may compete for the Arkansas Historic Places Student Film Prize, which honors student documentaries about any historic site in the state that is at least 50 or more years old. First through fourth place winners will receive $100, and one overall prize winner will receive $200.

Anyone interested in submitting films should visit aetn.org/studentselects for complete rules, to submit entries electronically and to download entry forms for mailed entries. Past entries may also be viewed online. Additional information may be obtained by contacting Casey Sanders at 501-682-4190 or csanders@aetn.org.

NOTE: The Young Filmmakers Showcase is a new event that highlights student videos of all genres from across the state of Arkansas. Student Selects films will screen, Thea Foundation Scholarships will be awarded and the Arkansas Historic Places Student Film Prize winners will screen. Plan to join us May 11 at the Ron Robinson Theater in the Little Rock Rivermarket District from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
