We’re working on a collection of different avenues to offer as awards for the winners in these film categories. It would be great to announce all of our intended prizes now, but it’s safe to wait until each endeavor is finalized.

Next Wave of Inspiration

Student-Produced Film

This category is for all of those in school who are motivated by movies. Maybe a class project or some friends who have a good story and a camera. Now is their time to experiment.

College-Produced Film

Just like the student-produced category but for those who are in college. You don’t need to be majoring in film studies, though we wouldn’t be surprised if this weren’t your focus.

New Visions

Artists who re-define their craft through work or a technical aspect. It’s hard to describe this category because what we’re looking for is new or unthought of to the industry.

Additional Film Categories

Comedy Feature – We’re looking for a good laugh. Creating something funny is never easy, so if you can produce it, we want to honor you.

Dramatic Feature – A good drama feature will suck you into the story. Characters will become relatable and will leave you talking about them after it’s over.

Fantasy, Sci-fi, Horror – Who doesn’t love movies that go against the grain? Films that are non-traditional and have a little imagination.

Documentary – Sometimes stories don’t need a script. Either it is nature, or even love story, as long as you are documenting life, this category is your calling.

Short Films – The theme could cover any angle. However, some films will not take that long to tell. Keep it short but sweet.
