participating schools 2013

This year’s participating schools:

For developing filmmakers, the student competition is a practical exercise in the pleasures and difficulties of filmmaking, highlighting the relative roles of creativity, craft, spontaneity, time, resource management, and teamwork in the process of making a film. In turn, the competition has become the centerpiece of the Lake Placid Film Forum with an entertaining, “American Idol”-style showcase of competition films held during the event.  Four prizes are awarded: the Robin Pell Emerging Filmmaker Award (which includes a cash prize), the Audience Choice Award, Best Actor and Best Actress.
