Don't miss this chance to be considered to screen your youth-made film the Seattle International Film Festival this June!
Submissions are now being accepted for the FutureWave Shorts program featuring the work of youth (aged 18 and under) from around the world.
If you have completed a film since January 2008, download the application form and send it in now. The application fee is just $20, and if you shot the film in Washington State, the application is FREE.
The FutureWave Shorts will be screened on June 6, 2009 during the Seattle International Film Festival (May 21-June 14, 2009). All youth filmmakers in attendance will participate in a post-screening Q+A (see photo above).

**Our friends at The Film School are bringing back their extraordinary Prodigy Camp. During one intensive week in June, students will be taught the secrets of screenwriting, directing, and cinematography, and they will apply that knowledge to shooting and editing in a short film.
Student Volunteers at SIFF
Volunteering with SIFF is great way for high-school students to get to know how SIFF Cinema and the Seattle International Film Festival works, and hours can be credited towards community service requirements. We have year-round opportunities in addition to our very active volunteer time during Festival.To get started, first register on-line at Shiftboard. You'll then receive access to our online scheduler, which has a shift calendar and other information on volunteering. Right now, we have an on-going need for ushers at SIFF Cinema, and also distributing our SIFF Cinema calendars throughout the city. In March, we'll begin recruiting for Festival volunteers, so if you're a registered volunteer, you'll receive our e-mail announcements regarding that.
