The 2nd Annual Bermuda Youth Film Festival is being launched today and will be hosted by Saltus. The inaugural year was a tremendous success, with the competition being won by an animated film created by Zen Marley Mello of Cedarbridge. Students from across the island were able to win prizes for their creative efforts in filmmaking.
This event is open island wide to all students aged 11 to 18 years and they are invited to submit short films, in three categories: 60-second sprint; 1–3-minute short shorts, and 3–5-minute short films. Entries are limited to one per category per student, but students can submit multiple entries (in different categories). We encourage schools to support a variety of student entries.
All films will need to include the 2023 ‘signature item’ which is the Moongate. All films that are submitted will be required to have a teacher acknowledgment form to ensure that the films meet the requirements.
Mrs. Therese Bean, Head of Creative Arts at Saltus and Founder of the Bermuda Youth Film Festival, expressed her excitement, “This year’s festival promises another outstanding opportunity to have your film work showcased on the big screen at BUEI and to a live audience who can help celebrate what might just be the beginning of your filmmaking career.”
The deadline for final films has been EXTENDED to Monday, 9th May and judging will occur within the first week of June. For more information and details, visit the webpage: https://www.saltus.bm/film-festival
We look forward to seeing you for the 2023 Bermuda Youth Film Festival!
