Student film festival seeking entries

SAISD film festivalMartin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, and Sofia Coppola all had to start somewhere before they became the famous film directors they are today. Now, San Antonio ISD students interested in taking the first steps into their film-making careers are encouraged to enter the first SAISD Student Film Festival. The event will be held at Highlands High School on April 16, and hosted by the Office of 21st Century Learning. 


“Our goal in launching a film festival is to offer a place for student voice and creativity while utilizing the digital tools and resources available in our schools,” said Becky Landa, executive director of the Office of 21st Century Learning. “This gives students a chance to show the world their imagination.”


Participants must secure a sponsoring teacher before creating their film. After finding a sponsor, students in the K-5th grades or 6th-12th grades can start production of their film. Submissions must fit in one of the three following categories: short film, documentary, or animation. Films must not exceed five minutes in length and will be evaluated based on content, production quality, and creativity.

The deadline to submit entries is March 18.


All films will be evaluated and the top three submissions in each category will be notified. Eighteen movies total will be screened at the Film Festival in April.


The Office of 21st Century Learning’s Ed Tech & Design will be hosting a virtual information session for teachers today, Jan. 16 from 4:30 - 5 p.m. Click here to register for the information session.
