June 29 Gen-I NOW: Submit Your Film to the White House Student Film Festival by July 15

Wequassin! (Hello in the Narragansett language)

This Gen-I Native Opportunities Weekly (NOW) message shares information about the Third Annual White House Student Film Festival.

Have hopes for the future? Thoughts on how your generation will bring them to life? Love to make films – or ever just secretly wished to give it a shot? Well, this is your chance!

From now through July 15th, 2016, the White House will accept submissions for the third annual White House Student Film Festival. The theme is “The World I Want to Live In”. US students, grades K-12, are invited to show what you hope the future will hold for us in the form of a short film. It can be fictional, animated, live-action documentary, or anything else you dream up. You can choose to show a broad vision, or perhaps focus on an issue that matters to you. If selected, you may have the chance to attend the film fest at the White House!

Applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • Applicants must be US students, grades K-12. However, the person submitting the film online must be at least 18, so that can be a high school student of that age, a parent, teacher, or guardian.
  • All films must be shorter than 3 minutes.
  • No film may use copyrighted material including music, TV shows, or movies.


  • All films must be uploaded to YouTube.
  • Click HERE to submit your film online.


All film submissions must be received by 11:59 p.m. EST on July 15th, 2016.
