ReadingFilm’s core mission is to develop the production community in the region. This is our third year of including special competition for student filmmakers in the ReadingFilmFEST.

Student filmmakers comprise a special group of independent filmmakers. They have not yet made the connections required of professional filmmakers, but they have fresh ideas and new visions to share. We celebrate their youthful exuberance by giving them their own section in our festival. Our goal is to attract students to submit and attend the festival. We’re thrilled that so many students have made the effort to attend the festival!

This year, we also made a special effort to include local high school students through our Five Minute FilmFEST competition. The winners of that competition will be a part of our StudentFilmFEST screening!

It is our hope that ReadingFilmFEST inspires students to learn the craft of filmmaking. The world needs films and today’s student filmmakers are tomorrow’s Academy Award winning directors, producers, and videographers. 

All films selected for the StudentFEST will play at a special Preview night on Thursday evening, October 31 at the Reading Movies 11 & IMAX. The winners will also be screened during the festival on Saturday, November 2 at 5:30 PM at the Reading Movies 11 & IMAX.

Congratulations to all of our student filmmakers. You are all winners!
