The deadline for the second White House Student Film Festival is 11:59 p.m. EST on February 2. The theme of this year’s festival is The Impact of Giving Back, and it’s open to U.S. students, Grades K-12. The White House is looking for stories “about paying it forward, about community service, or what making a difference looks like in your eyes and through your lens. It can be a fictional story or a short documentary, so break out the lights, write a script, get the camera ready, and show us your passion for service and giving back.” All films must be shorter than 3 minutes.
