SC Young Filmmakers Project -- Call for Submissions

young filmmakers Jasper is a nut for the sweet intensity of a well-made film and thrilled that this program opens the door to that special magic to young SC filmmakers. Here's hoping you'll help us pass the word along!

It's simple for South Carolina high school students to enter the SC Young Filmmakers Project.  Make a short film (at least 30-seconds long, two-minutes max).  Shoot at least one scene at a South Carolina State Park.  GO WILD! with your imagination.  Be clever and creative.  Most importantly, create a film with a story.

Deadline for entries is midnight on Friday, March 21, 2014.  The Top Ten finalists will screen in a special program at the 2014 Charleston International Film Festival.  First, second, and third place winners will receive cash prizes.

For complete rules and how to enter, visit our contest page here.
