FLORIDA STUDENT FILM COMPETITION - LAST CALL FOR FLORIDA FILMMAKERS
The highly acclaimed Student Showcase of Films (SSOF) has become known as the most prestigious competition for Florida student filmmakers. The juried statewide competition recognizes outstanding high school and college students by presenting over $25,000 in cash awards, prizes and scholarships in four film categories: Feature/Shorts and Documentaries, Animation, PSA/Commercial, Music Video and new this year, a special “Audience Award” Prize will also be awarded to the most popular student film voted on-line by the public. The competition also includes awarding a $5,000 Burt Reynolds scholarship to two Palm Beach County high school seniors, a screenwriting competition and a $1,000 poster competition open to middle and high schools.
The professionally produced live Student Showcase of Films awards ceremony, a much anticipated signature event of the Palm Beach International Film Festival (PBIFF), will showcase the finest student works. Entries are judged by industry professionals from around the US. The awards ceremony will be held on April 15, 2008 in Palm Beach County, FL, at Palm Beach Community College’s Lake Worth Campus, Duncan Theatre.
Every year, professionals from various facets of the production industry donate their time to conduct workshops & seminars, participate on industry panels and/or act as judges for the competitions. Winning student films will be screened in their entirety at the students’ own premier during the film festival.
