The NW High School Film Festival, (NWHSFF), is the high school video festival of the Washington State Puget Sound region and is one of the largest high school based film festivals in the country. Each year more than 20 area schools participate, and 200-300 entries are judged by a panel of film and video professionals and college level educators. Students receive valuable written feedback on their productions, have a chance to get beautiful awards, and to see the best the region has to offer. Winning productions often go on to take prizes at national and international festivals.
Each year, one of the graduating filmmakers receiving an award is selected to receive the J-Dogg Scholarship. This portable scholarship supports a student in pursuit of a media-related degree at the college of their choice. (More details click here)
Check back here periodically for other scholarship and awards opportunities that may be offered by sponsors as we get closer to the festival date.
The NWHSFF is organized through the voluntary labor of The Media Educators Excellence Team. M.E.E.T. also provides an opportunity for media teachers in the area’s schools to gather together, discuss relevant curriculum and support one another as we seek to improve our programs.The committee is a valuable resource for media educators who wish to grow their skills and develop their students through communication with their peers. We invite you to get involved. To join, CLICK HERE AND CONTACT ONE OF THE TEACHERS LISTED ON OUR "ABOUT US" PAGE
