The White House, Washington

Got big ideas for the future? Love to make films -- or ever secretly wished to give it a shot?

Well, this is your chance! The White House Student Film Festival is back with a new theme: "The World I Want to Live In." From now through July 15th, we'll be taking submissions from K-12 students across the country. We can’t wait to see your vision for the future, whether its fiction, animation, or documentary.

Check out WhiteHouse.Gov/FilmFest to learn more about the event and read the official submission guidelines.

Over the past years we’ve received thousands of submissions -- truly amazing creations that inspired us film buffs here at the White House. This will be President Obama’s third and final White House Student Film Festival, so we encourage you to spread the word to friends, whether they are kids, parents or teachers with a passion for creating videos and sharing stories. Students under the age of 14 should have their parent, guardian, or teacher assist with submitting.

If your project is selected, you may have a chance to attend the Film Fest right here at the White House. The Official Selections will also be featured across the White House website and social media channels. You can watch several entries from the past two student film festivals for some inspiration.

Remember, submissions close on July 15th, so get filming to be sure that deadline doesn't sneak up on you!

Show us the future you imagine, because we’d like to share it with the world. Don’t forget to spread the word: It's time for lights, camera, action!
