New this year! The Freeze Frame Film Contest is a video contest for grades K-12 as part of Winter Fest. Show the world what lights your fire in winter through your very own video.

The contest encourages young individuals, or groups, to produce a short film (5 min max). The films can be of any style (live action, music videos, documentaries, stories told with photographs, etc.). The subject matter must be clean (G or PG).

The premiere will show the top 7 films from each age category (K-6th, Middle School, High School) and winners in each category for individual and group will be announced that evening.

A panel of judges (youth, professional, teacher, etc.) will determine the winners at the premiere. All the submitted video would be shown on PEGTV after the contest.

Deadline to submit a film is FEBRUARY 8th. All applicants chosen for the Premiere will be notified by February 13th.

This contest and premiere are made possible by the following sponsors and community organizations: PEGTV, Stafford Technical Center, and Merchants Hall.
