Prizes

Every time you set out to face a challenge you learn something new either about yourself or your craft, so regardless of how your film does in the competition, we hope you've gotten something out of this just by participating. Use what you've learned to make an even more amazing film next year. We also like to award outstanding work, and recognize there are lots of ways to be outstanding. See the About page for more details.
