The 2013 Beloit International Film Festival is fast approaching and with it comes the second year of a program specifically for middle school and high school students called the Student Filmmaker Showcase. This program is for 6th – 12th grade students and gives them the opportunity to create a short film of their own to be presented at a special showcase during BIFF.

Entries can be of any genre, must be between three and five minutes long, and will be created by the students themselves. Any and all students interested in being a part of this program should try to be a part of the film workshops that will be presented over the next four months.

Students will have the opportunity to participate in this series of four workshops presented by BIFF in partnership with Drywater Productions and the Beloit Public Library that will teach students how to create a short film from inception to completion. Drywater Productions is a film
company owned and operated by Stephen and Cameron Pickering, professional filmmakers from Janesville, WI. Their films have been showcased in the Beloit International Film Festival for the past several years and they are very excited to be participating in this endeavor.

These workshops will take place from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Beloit Public Library on Friday, October 12th, Saturday, November 10th, Saturday, December 1st, and Saturday, January 12th. These workshops are free and all middle school and high school students are welcome.
