TEEN TIMES by Cody Hilton

FILM AWARD CONTENDERS INCLUDE

The numerous films that will be up for consideration at the Golden Globes and the Oscars should make it really interesting this year. The film Argo really shines the light on Ben Affleck's talent in all areas. Anna Karenina is historically interesting and the costumes are good, but this seemed like a Russian inspired chick flick. Les Mis will probably win lots of awards this year. I always enjoy a character developed by Tony Hopkins and Hitchcock is worth the price. Hobbit in 3D is three hours of very interesting and all round good film making. So far things are looking very challenging for anyone voting for the best in all film categories this year.

Here's looking at you movie lovers! If you are planning to attend the Santa Barbara International Film Festival visit www.sbiff.org for tickets and information.

THE 10th ANNUAL 10-10-10 STUDENT COMPETITIONS BEGINS

AT THE 28th SANTA BARBARA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

The Santa Barbara International Film Festival (which runs January 24-February 3) will present the 10-10-10 Student Filmmaking Competition for the eighth consecutive year. SBIFF will also continue the exciting 10-10-10 Student Screenwriting Competition which debuted in 2006. These events bring together student filmmakers and screenwriters with industry professionals in an effort to encourage and assist the next generation of filmmakers.
The Screenwriting Competition sponsored by Business First Bank and Final Draft features 10 writers who were selected out of 42 submissions from Santa Barbara area high school and college students who submitted a 10-page sample of their best work – screenplay, stage play, or short story. The five best script samples were chosen from the high school level and five from the college level. The finalists were then assigned a storyline and an industry professional to mentor them during the writing of their screenplay. Finalists met with their mentor throughout the process.
The 10 student screenplays will be officially matched at the press conference with a category-appropriate filmmaking finalist from the 10-10-10 Student Filmmaking Competition. These 10 students, selected from 46 submissions, will direct a 10-minute film during the 10 days of the 28th Santa Barbara International Film Festival.
On Sunday, February 3, at 1:00 pm at the Lobero Theatre, the 10 films will be screened and judged on both filmmaking and screenwriting criteria. A winner in each of the competitions will be selected from both the high school and college levels. The winning films will be shown at the Closing Night festivities later that evening at the Arlington Theatre.
