Teen Arts Council Film Fest 2021 - Call for Filmmakers!

The Teen Arts Council Film Festival is a virtual event hosted by the DIA Teen Arts Council as an opportunity for young people ages 13 - 20 to share short films of their creation with an audience and discuss their ideas and creative process, as well as answer questions during a live panel.

We are currently accepting submissions to be featured in our showcase. Ten artists will be selected to participate at our Teen Arts Council Film Fest on March 13, 2021. 

Those that agree to these terms will also be given a $200 stipend for their participation.
