High School Film Competition


Attention: High School Film/Visual Media Programs

The Prescott Film Festival is proud to continue our High School Film Competition! 

Last year’s competition brought films from all across the state of Arizona, and California!  We’re excited to showcase the BEST in High School Student Films again in 2017.

Now entering its 8th year, the Prescott Film Festival entertains, inspires and informs by screening independent and critically acclaimed films throughout the year.  We would like your school and students to become part of our proud tradition!  Our submission date for students is May 1, 2017.

We really want you and your students to come to the festival.  In addition to having fun in the cool pines of Prescott, we think there is much to be learned from viewing independent films, attending workshops presented by professional filmmakers, and interacting with other filmmakers in a variety of settings.  As such, we would like to offer the following to your students whose films are selected:

FREE All Film Pass to every high school filmmaker that is an official selection to be screened during the festival

FREE All Film Pass to every high school instructor whose class submits 10 or more films for consideration

FREE Movie 10 Pack (an $80 value) to each high school film maker who submits a film

Discounted movie submission fee– only $10!

This year, the main festival will be presented June 9 through 17 in association with Yavapai College in Prescott.  In addition to the benefits listed above, we have negotiated special Bed & Breakfast rates with Yavapai College for those students who may wish to come with their family and stay overnight – or even for the full festival!  Our goal is to give students a positive experience on a college campus.

Whether supporting a hobby or a career, digital media skills are great assets for students to bring to college and beyond.
