DIVA's Youth Visions Teen Video Challengee is an annual competition celebrating the work of young videomakers in Lane County ages 13-19. The festival is taking a year off while its sponsoring agency, the Downtown Initiative for the Visual Arts is in the process of reorganizing and renewing its mission in our community.
We hope to make a call for a Teen Video Challenge for 2016. When we do, teens will be able to submit work that is reviewed by a panel of video professionals and educators. Those videos that demonstrate the most creative, effective and skillful responses to the call for entries will be screened and awarded prizes at a special Teen Video Challenge Festival screening at the Bijou Cinema Arts Theater. Winning videos may go on to be shown at other festivals and events as part of a Youth Visions Festival compilation program.
OF POSSIBLE INTEREST: Now through January 20, submissions are open for the second White House Student Film Festival. "The theme of this year’s festival is The Impact of Giving Back, and it’s open to U.S. students, grades K-12. So tell a story about paying it forward, about community service, or what making a difference looks like in your eyes and through your lens. It can be a fictional story or a short documentary, so break out the lights, write a script, get the camera ready, and show us your passion for service and giving back. We can't wait to see what you will make this year!"
