VERMONT- Calling all filmmakers ages 10 to 30 who live or go to school in Vermont. Win cash prizes and share your work on Vermont PBS and at film festivals statewide in the 2017 Freedom & Unity TV Vermont Youth Film Contest. The deadline for the third annual competition, which accepts short films with a Vermont focus, is March 26, 2017. To get rules, enter, and watch films from last year’s contest visit

Since its creation in 2015, the Freedom & Unity TV Vermont Youth Film Contest has drawn over 200 entries from across Vermont. The winning films have been screened at WRIF (White River Indie Film Festival), the Vermont International Film Festival, and at Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival. They’ve also been broadcast on VT PBS and on public access stations across the state.

Finally, we’re excited to announce a new $3,500 work-in-progress filmmaking award for Vermont filmmakers. Vermont filmmakers working on a film (in any genre or length) that was shot in Vermont, and/or includes a Vermont theme, who are not currently enrolled in an educational institution, are eligible to apply. The application deadline is February 15, 2017. To learn more visit
