It has been 10 years since the first Keller ISD Film Festival back in 2008. During that time, the festival has grown significantly both in terms of student involvement and the standard of entries. Over 4,000 films have been entered by over 15,000 students during this time, each one demonstrating creativity, engagement, collaboration and technical ability, as well as sheer fun and enjoyment with the process. We have filled theaters to capacity and beyond showcasing the students' achievements.
To celebrate this milestone, the 10th anniversary Film Festival will be the biggest yet, rewarding more student achievements than ever before and with an event epic in size and scale. Some of the features of this special Film Festival are:
- More entry categories available, offering more creative options for participation including 2 new categories (Foreign Language and Teacher Feature) as well as the return of the Weekend Challenge.
- More finalists per entry category, allowing more students to be recognized for their high quality work - up to 10 films can now be made finalists in each category and age group.
- An expanded entry period affording students sufficient time to work on their entries - entries can be submitted any time from now right up to January 31, 2019.
- Longer clips presented at the awards gala, rewarding student efforts by showcasing more of their work.
- A larger theater venue, allowing all students, their families and friends, and the community to enjoy the festival together.
- A true festival-style all-day gala event which will celebrate entries over an extended period of time, allowing guests to come and go, or stay for all categories.
