A new short film festival is looking to give secondary students across B.C. something to keep them busy and creative over Christmas break.

MORVENFEST is the creation of Grade 11 Collingwood School students, Kevin Ren and William Hou, who Ren said have been interested in film since they were kids.

The festival is open to groups of students in Grades 8 to 12 and will require that they create a 30-second to six-minute video based off a poster prompt that will be released one week before the submission deadline.

Ren and Hou said they are hoping to create a platform for every level of filmmaker to display their work on.

“We’re hoping to connect everyone during this tough time,” Ren said.

Registration for the event is free, and every participating group will receive a 30-minute workshop by the Vancouver Film School regardless of whether they win or not.

Groups that win one of the five award categories – directing, sound mixing, editing, acting and cinematography – will also receive a $50 Cineplex gift card.

The registration deadline is Dec. 13. Groups will receive the poster prompt on Dec. 20 and short films will be due on Dec. 27.

More details can be found on the MORVENFEST website, morvenfest.ca.
