Darien Library is holding the first Teen Film Contest as a part of One Book, One Community 2010.
Beginning on April 1st, the Library will be accepting submissions of short films in any genre from students in grades 7-12. Through the contest, we hope to showcase the talent of local teens in film production. The deadline for submitting entries will be April 30. Entries will be judged on their content, creativity, style and technique. Films can be in any genre: fiction, documentary, animation, or video podcast, and should be less than five minutes in length.
Entry forms can be found in the Teen Lounge on the Lower Level of the Library or downloaded here. If you would like to borrow one of the library's Flip cameras to shoot your movie, stop by the lower level.
On May 9 at 3 PM, there will a screening of the films to which all contest participants, their families and friends, as well as members of the community will be invited. At the awards ceremony the prizes will be presented. For more information, call 669-5225.
