White House Student Film Festival 1/20/15
We are happy to announce that from 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.

From the site: I started the film festival as a way to get interesting and creative people together to watch interesting and creative films; films that might not otherwise be seen. The event is free, and always will be. There will be beer, wine, cider and chocolate (also, free.) You can make the film on your iPhone, fancy SLR camera, or 16mm Bolex. wetransfer upload.
Open Air Filmfest Weiterstadt (Germany) 5/15/15
“The Woodstock of Short Film”, with supporting events like a short film poetry slam, an animation workshop and a super 8 film market were added. However, the festival’s basic idea remains the same: A large and enthusiastic audience gathers to watch inventive and creative films not limited to a certain style, production method or format. Filmmakers from all around the world present their films in person and answer questions.
