Hit the Beach, Make a Film
Students, summer is almost here . . . why not use the break to make your very own film about the ocean? You could win $500 and a chance to see your film on the big screen!
We open up the competition well before the January 11, 2016 deadline so you have the summer to get started creating your film.
You Can Be Part of the Festival!
- It's easy and free to enter!
- Open to 6th through 12th grade students.
- Films must be less than 5 minutes (with credits).
- Your topic can be anything related to the ocean.
The three top winners in each category—middle school and high school—will receive a prize (up to $500!) and will have their films screened at the 2016 San Francisco International Ocean Film Festival!

Get Started Today
The deadline is January 11, 2016. But films can take time to create and edit, so it's a good idea to start as soon as possible. Summer is a great time to do a film project!
Be sure to read the competition rules before you start. If you have any questions after that, please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org or call our office at (415) 561-6251.
We look forward to seeing your films, and good luck!
