Film Competition Winners

Each Spring, Lander University hosts its short film competition. The competition challenges high school, college and open division entrants to submit a completed film between three and five minutes long. The filmmakers only have a week to complete their films and they are required to use a prop and a line provided by competition coordinators to ensure that films were not part of a previous project. Many films are submitted each year, but in the end, only a handful of filmmakers find themselves at the top of the list. Take a look at some of the competition winners, and see what made them rise to the top.
