YOU MUST BE 18 OR YOUNGER TO ENTER!
In celebration of the National Park Service Centennial, the Statue of Liberty NM has partnered with Tribeca Film Institute to launch a national youth film competition called The America I Am. It’s a call for youth across the country to submit short films exploring their personal connection to the American Experience.
Students will submit a rough video draft of their film by February 12. Of the thousands of submissions we hope to receive, we will select five finalists to move forward into the next phase. Each of the five finalists will receive $1000 production budget and will be mentored by industry professionals to hone their craft and to help polish up their film entries.
During National Park Week, the final version of their short films will premiere on April 21 at a red carpet event for 2016 Tribeca Film Festival®. The films will show again later that same evening at a NPS Centennial Celebration event at the Statue of Liberty National Monument and Ellis Island where the winners will be announced.
