Submit your short films!
WILMORE, KY—Want to be a movie producer, director or an actor? Want to have your short film premiered to an audience of 20,000 or even broadcast around the world? The Highbridge Film Festival is now taking high school students’ entries for the 2006 festival to be held May 5-6 on Asbury College’s campus.
The Highbridge Film Festival seeks entries which illustrate the human experience through struggles, joys, tragedies and miracles. The festival is open to diverse interpretations; however, it encourages stories that avoid being gratuitously and explicitly violent or obscene. The Highbridge Film Festival exists to inspire, promote and support creative storytelling for young people around the world.
Winning entries will be shown at the film festival as well as to an audience of 20,000 at Ichthus, a Christian music Festival, in June. The winning films will also receive an Internet distribution package, which will allow anyone around the world to download copies of the film. Judges include all three partners of 3n1 Entertainment from Los Angeles. The senior partner, John Tinker, is the Emmy-winning writer/producer/executive producer for Chicago Hope, The Practice, L.A. Law and St. Elsewhere. His newest work, starring Will Smith, is currently in production.
