First Annual Teen Film Festival: Did you Win?

And the winner is .... Magic Chalk!! With a grand prize of a $200 gift card from Best Buy, Magic Chalk took home the gold at the first annual Teen Film Festival. The nominees include a film about a first date, a nerd, and many other creative adventures.

At the award show, the filmmakers, their friends, and family walked the red carpet, took celebrity photos, and enjoyed refreshments. A screen of the films followed with awards handed out for the best film in each category. None of this would have been possible without the generous support of the Friends of the John F. Germany Public Library.

Teens had two months to create, film, and edit their films, which were then judged by a committee of librarians. Start brainstorming ideas for next year's festival and you may be the next Teen Film Festival winner!
