  2. 2. Why? • Why do you have a film or media festival in your school district? • OR- Why do you want to have a film or media festival in your school district?
  3. 3. Why? • NETS-S, NETS-T Standards - addresses many depending on extent of projects and festival organization • Students can connect to similar events already in existence.
  4. 4. Decide: Film or Media • Will you have only film submissions or include a variety of media projects? • Choices could include: videos such as documentaries, public service announcements, advertising, fictional productions, factual presentations; machinima; animation; video games; music videos; vodcasts; wikis or other Web sites; PowerPoint presentations • What are the skills of the staff and students in your district? • What type of equipment is available?
  5. 5. Decide: Grade Levels • Plan what grade levels to include. • You could include all levels: K-12. • You could begin smaller or set up festivals for your different grade levels, such as an elementary level festival or high school festival.
  6. 6. Rules/Application • Must be clear for students and teachers • Samples on Wikispace and on other Web sites • Must meet needs of your community- ability level of adults and children
  7. 7. Scoring • Judges - who will it be at each level? • Rubric - depends on projects to be included • ? At school level and district level • This has been most difficult for me
  8. 8. Funding and Prizes • Where does funding come from - PTOs, local businesses, school budget, grants, etc. • Cost of advertising, prizes, certificates, reserving a theater, what else? • How are prizes awarded - by grade level, category, special prizes not based on grade level (by subject area for example or “most enthusiastic”); or scored against rubric and not in competition with others; or a combination • Certificate of participation for all
