The Keller ISD Film Festival is an opportunity for students to develop their visual literacy and expand their educational experience in Keller ISD by fostering the creativity, artistic, communication and technical skills required for producing a movie. Students have seven entry categories to choose from including Story, Comedy, Music Video, Documentary, Instructional and Animation, and have the chance to be honored at an Awards Ceremony on May 8th, 2014, where they can win trophies, certificates, prizes and more!
Lots of exciting new and returning features to this years festival include:
The entire entry process is again completely online! Movies can be uploaded using YouTube,
or any video-hosting website (Vimeo, SchoolTube, etc),
then fill out the online entry form below and click Submit.
In order to allow students more time to work on and complete their entries,
the Film Festival now runs alongside the school year schedule.
This means that entries are accepted through March 16th, 2014!
We have a new category for specific Public Service Announcements (PSAs). The concept is that each year, the district will give specific guidelines on a topic or topics for students to create PSA films. This year’s PSA topic is Safety First and the winning entries will be used by the district for promoting that particular theme
Design the poster to be used for next year’s Film Festival! The winning entry will be featured next year on all Film Festival related media, including posters on every campus,
the website, and even during the Awards Night video sequences!
