(10 Days – 10 Crews – 10 Films) The 10-10-10 Screenwriting and Filmmaking Competition started in 2004 and is a highly successful educational program developed by SBIFF to bring together student screenwriters, student filmmakers and industry professionals in an effort to encourage and assist the next generation of filmmakers. Students are mentored over several months then during the annual Film Festival, they produce 10 films over a period of 10 days and are judged on both Filmmaking and Screenwriting criteria. Since its inception, 10-10-10 has given a public forum to hundreds of student screenwriters and filmmakers and generated a wealth of original creative work.
High school and college contestants compete within their own categories. An overall winner of the 10-10-10 Student Filmmaking Competition will be chosen from each category. Similarly, an overall winner of the 10-10-10 Student Screenwriting Competition will also be chosen from each category. The contending 10-10-10 films will be screened, judged and winners announced at a public screening open to the public at the Arlington Theatre on the final day of the Film Festival.
Applications to participate are available in September.
