We've put together an impressive team of film professionals to help us grade and select the official screeners for the 2017 EDU Film Festival. They will give each film a grade for story, cinematography, sound, edit/post-production, and "heart." Those grades will be averaged and compiled to determine which films will screen. Take a look at the selection team bios, you'll be honored that they are watching your work.
We are now accepting entries for the 2017 EDU Film Festival. We are looking for short films from Minnesota high school (or middle school) students to screen at the 2017 EDU Film Festival. Submit entries in the Narrative, Documentary, Experimental, Music Video, Animation, or PSA categories. All submissions are due by April 15th, 2017.
EDU is honored to welcome Seeka TV as a premier sponsor for the 2017 festival year. Seeka is a streaming platform that allows independent filmmakers to more efficiently find their audience, interact with their fans and monetize their content.
Jerrad was the last entry for the EDU film festival which includes more than 70 short student-created films picked to be shown on Friday at the ShowPlace Icon theater in St. Louis Park. The EDU Film Fest, presented by Best Buy and sponsored by IPR-College of Creative Arts, is a one-day festival celebrating and recognizing the film work of middle school and high school Students from around the state. Usually, the short films for this film festival are limited to five minutes, but this film is three times that length. The creator of the film festival quickly realized ”Jerrad” was worth every second. Watch the story on FOX9.com
