Artful cinema can educate as well as entertain. Following are just a few of the programs the Festival will offer: 10-10-10 Student Screenwriting Competition and Sotheby’s International Realty 10-10-10 Student Filmmaking Competition — The Screenwriting Competition, sponsored by Business First Bank, is comprised of 10 students who were selected out of submissions from Santa Barbara area high school and college students who submitted a 10-page sample of their best fiction writing – screenplay, stage play, or short story – to their school’s representative. The five best script samples were chosen from the high school level and five from the college level. The finalists are then assigned a storyline and an industry professional to mentor them during the writing of their screenplay. Finalists will meet with their mentor throughout the process, submitting their final draft in January 2008. The 10 student screenplays will then be matched with a category-appropriate Filmmaking finalist from the Sotheby’s International Realty 10-10-10 Student Filmmaking Competition, which consists of 10 students selected from 22 submissions, who will then produce a 10-minute film during the 10 days of the 23rd Santa Barbara International Film Festival.
