Rockland Theater Seeks Short Film Submissions


ROCKLAND — The Strand Theater plans to hold its third annual Strand Youth Film Festival, an opportunity for young people living in Maine to create and submit their own short films.

Entries will be accepted until October 31, with prizes and a public presentation of the films scheduled for December. The awards will be decided by a judging panel made up of Strand employees and local film professionals, according to a press release from the theater.

All filmmakers must enter grades 5 through 12 in the 2022-23 school year, or be between the ages of 9 and 18. The Junior division is for 9-13 year olds and the Senior division is for 14-18 year olds.

Entrants must live in Maine. Films must be between one and five minutes long and have a G or PG rating, and must be entered in one of the following categories: narrative (fiction), documentary, music video or animation.

Prizes will be awarded in each film category for both divisions, plus a Best of Fest award. Films must be submitted in .mov or .mp4 format (most iPhone and iPad videos follow these formats).

Only one film per participant is allowed.
