Expressions New Media Youth Festival calling for submissions

Calling all film buffs, animators and game designers!

If you are under 19 years of age and living in Nova Scotia, you are invited to submit your creative works to the second annual Expressions New Media Youth Festival taking place February 21 in Bridgewater.

Expressions is now accepting submissions of original work in the categories of film/video, animation and video games. All the work submitted will be viewed by youth juries and will be eligible to win fantastic prizes including cash, games, pool passes, gift cards and other goodies.

Films and animations can be fact or fiction in any genre - action, adventure, comedy, drama, fantasy, horror, mystery or romance. All types of video games - arcade, platform, puzzle, racing, role-playing, shooter or strategy - are welcome. Entries will be screened at Empire Theatres Bridgewater and prize winners will be announced at the closing gala at the end of the day. The festival promises to be a great celebration of learning, creativity and high-tech fun with afternoon workshops at Artech Studios, so get your projects submitted before the January 31 deadline.
