The Montclair Film Festival’s EMERGING FILMMAKER COMPETITION celebrates the work of filmmakers from our region who are in the 6th through 12th grades. These films, adjudicated by a jury of local film professionals, represent a wide range of styles and voices that showcase the diverse talents of young people who are using cinema to tell their stories. Categories include narrative, comedy, documentary, and experimental films. Awards will be given in each of these categories, as well as for films that make a social impact. This year will have a special additional category: My COVID Life.

Students’ films can be entered into one of the following divisions:

Storytellers: Grades 6 – 8
Visionaries: Grades 9 – 12

Filmmakers in the Storyteller division may submit a film up to 4 minutes in length.
Filmmakers in the Visionaries division may submit a film up to 6 minutes in length.

Award categories include:

Narrative– a story of connected events, real or imaginary. May contain elements of humor, narration, non-fiction, etc.
Documentary– a non-fiction film intended to instruct, inform the audience or maintain an historical record.
Comedy– Ha! (You get it.)
Experimental– films that explores alternatives to traditional narratives.
Social Impact – films that engage with social issues.
2021 Special Category: My COVID Life–short films that reflect the pain, humor, boredom, anxiety, darkness and light of living through COVID-19
Awards are determined by the EFC Committee. Not all categories may receive awards, and the MF reserves the right to add awards for outstanding achievement.
