Get the Oscar awards ready, these future movie makers are ready for their close ups!
Think you have what it takes to make award winning films? Submit a movie to the 4-H Film Festival!
Participants use their creativity to make a 1-10 minute video to enter into this year’s contest. The top three videos in each category will be shown at the North Dakota 4-H Film Festival at the State Fair. Judges will select winners for each category prior to the festival, and audience members will vote for the People’s Choice Award after the videos have been shown at the festival.
Join us on Sunday, July 20 at 2pm as we roll out the red carpet for the 4-H Film Festival! This fun event will take place in the Norsk Room of the North Dakota State Fair Center. The public is welcome to come out, grab some popcorn and show support for the hardworking 4-H kids!
