The 10-10-10 Competition is always a highlight of the Film Festival. It is an opportunity for high school and college level students
to be mentored by industry professionals in making a short film in competition. Students who are enrolled in Santa Barbara area high schools and colleges are
invited to submit a 10 page writing sample or a five minute film sample. Screenwriting and filmmaking finalists are chosen and are paired with industry
professionals, who volunteer their times as mentors. The 10 student screenplays are matched with a filmmaking finalist, who directs a 10-minute film, shot
during the 10 days of the Santa Barbara International Film Festival.
These films were shown Sunday afternoon at the Arlington to a theater full of students, parents and film lovers. At the end of the
screenings, the ten films were judged by a pre-selected panel and the winners announced.
The 10-10-10 Competition is definitely one of my favorite things about the Film Festival. Watching the creativity of high school
and college students be realized on the screen is always such an awesome and pleasant surprise. This year, the films in the competition seemed especially
good. They exhibited sensitivity, insight, and great humor. These are a talented bunch of young film makers.
