High school students in Fairfield and Westchester counties were invited to submit films in the following five categories: Creative, Animation, Documentary, Music Video, and Public Service Announcement.
More than 130 films were entered. Director Ron Howard judged the Creative entries; Blue Sky Studios judged the Animation entries; film producer Clay Pecorin judged the Documentary entries; film and television composer Jeff Cardoni judged the Music Video entries; and journalist Gretchen Carlson judged the Public Service Announcements.
The top five submissions in each category will be screened, and winners will be announced. Additionally, one of the final top five will be chosen as the overall winner of the Greenwich Youth Film Festival.
The event is free but tickets are required. Thursday, April 26, is the last day to reserve tickets online at the Junior League of Greenwich website. Remaining tickets will be available on Saturday at Cole Auditorium at noon.
