For all you student filmmakers out there! This looks like a great competition - you cannot only get your name out there, but also be part of making a difference!
The American Film Institute encourages young filmmakers to submit their films to the White House Student Film Festival. The theme this year is “The Impact of Giving Back.” Here are some thoughts and advice from our friends Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monaghan, Bill Hader, Mark Wahlberg, Jessica Chastain, Oscar Isaac, Edward Norton, Jacqueline Lyanga and J.C. Chandor. For more information about the festival and how to submit your film, please visit http://www.whitehouse.gov/filmfestival.
