Inspiring Maine's next generation of filmmakers.


Our Mission

For over 40 years, the Maine Student Film & Video Festival has enabled young filmmakers from across Maine with opportunities to pursue their passion for creating narrative, documentary, experimental, and animated films. Through a juried competition, scholarships and prizes are awarded at a special ceremony to top filmmakers during the Maine International Film Festival in July. 

Now, Maine Student Film and Video has expanded to offer a free statewide conference for students and educators in filmmaking and learning with film in the classroom. It's all part of the Maine Film Center's mission to enrich, educate, and entertain the community through film and art.
