Teen Film Challenge

Want to make a movie? Well, here’s your chance! All you have to do is create a film between 2-10 minutes in length in the genre of your choice.

Live it up red carpet style at the Teen Film Challenge Awards Ceremony. Over $1,000 in prizes will be awarded for a variety of categories including Best Picture!

Once you’ve created your video, bring the printable entry forms and your video on USB or CD to any GCPL branch. Please put the entry form in an envelope labeled “Film Challenge” when submitting your movie.

Not sure how to make a movie? Keep an eye out for our series of workshops to help you plan, shoot, and edit your short film. You can also reserve time at the Centerville, Five Forks, Hamilton Mill, or Lilburn Learning Labs to create footage, edit your film, or receive individualized instruction on movie magic and editing.

If you have any questions, you can email us here.

Entries will be accepted from November 1, 2019 through January 24, 2020 at 5pm. The Teen Film Challenge Awards Ceremony will be held Saturday, March 21st, 2020 at the Suwanee Branch. A teen representative for each film must be at the Awards Ceremony in order to win.

*Films must be appropriate for the target age range (13-18) and will be screened for content prior to screening.
