Zooom Video Festival Applications


ZOOOM is on the search for energetic and passionate artists who are raring to share their stories through video.  ZOOOM is an annual event proudly sponsored by the Okotoks Art Council, and we are hoping to gather many unique and entertaining films from students across the Foothills. 

This year we’re accepting videos from filmmakers aged 11-18.  The entirety of the footage should 3-5 minutes in length.  Final submissions will be due on August 31st/2016.  The theme of the competition is “Story”.  Whether this is a literal or symbolic interpretation is completely up to you.  Express the theme in any way you wish! 

Films can be narrative (story-driven), metaphorical (something representing something else), abstract (anything goes!) or somewhere in between.  Feel free to submit either live-action or animation.

Projects will be judged on individual voice, creativity, unique style, passion and impact.

The prize for the winning entry is $1000.00 and a prime spot on the screening list.

Have fun sharing your unique vision! Apply here!
