The goal of the festival is to help high school filmmakers have an opportunity to have their work screened and make industry connections (The selected films are played on festival night at the AMC Empire theatre in Times Square). Currently I am putting together a production team to enter a short film drama this year. If you are interested in working preproduction, production, or postproduction, please click the form below. We need artists of all kinds on our team including actors, extras, editors, cinematographers, makeup artists, composers, musicians, production helpers, set designers, you name it! Some scenes may require time outside of the school day, but I am happy to design the schedule around the needs of the participants! If you have any questions, feel free to reach out at
