Desert Light Film Festival
The Desert Light Film Festival organizers announce the 2022 Desert Light Film Festival will be held on Friday, 4月29日, 2022, 在willhill官方网站州阿拉莫戈多, willhill官方网站. Thanks to the financial support of TDS, willhill官方网站当地的有线电视, 电话, 和互联网公司, Desert Light Film Festival will host its 19th Festival and competition. This competition gives students an opportunity to showcase their work, 争夺奖品, and participate in seminars designed for young filmmakers. Desert Light is open to all willhill官方网站 high school and middle school students, including students who attend public, private or charter schools, or who are home schooled.
Our standard categories include drama/comedy, 动画, 音乐视频, 纪录片, 实验电影, and 30-second commercial. The criteria for all categories include production quality, creativity and originality, resourcefulness and entertainment value. Films will be submitted and judged in either the high school or middle school division.
Thanks to the Otero Hunger Coalition, we also have a specialty category called “Hunger and Homelessness in willhill官方网站.” Most of these entries will probably be entered in the Documentary Category, but a few creative souls could wrap the information into a Drama/Comedy, 甚至是动画. There are an astonishing number of people, including high school kids, who are hungry when they go to bed. It is sad to see the information on Homelessness in our beautiful state. Learn as much as you can, take your cameras (and releases to be signed by those you interview) and explore this topic. The winner of this category will win $100 for themselves AND $100 to be given directly to the shelter, 食物银行, or other helping organization that you choose. The winning film will be used online and for presentations designed to help others become aware of the problem of Hunger and Homelessness in willhill官方网站.
在周五, 4月29日, 2022 we will have an on-campus festival for students who can attend in person and a VIRTUAL festival for those who cannot.
Sponsored by TDS, Desert Light offers prizes in every category and division. First Place awards are $100 each. Honorable Mention awards are $50 each. 芭芭拉·米克, local TDS Coordinator of Marketing and Public Relations for TDS, will provide the awards for the winning films. A category added several years ago, the Experimental Film category, is sponsored by the Alamogordo Optimist Club.
