This year’s Young Filmmakers Competition included 16 short, silent films (3 minutes or less) by aspiring young directors. For the SILENT FILM CHALLENGE, the rules were simple: no spoken words! Entry into the competition is free and open to any individual or group 18 years of age and under. Awards were presented to the top three films, Honorable Mention and Audience Favorite. As a special treat our talented friend, Dr. Larry Schanker, played live, improvisational piano accompaniment to each film on Awards Night.
