Attention All High School Student Film Makers!!

Reel Generation

The REEL GENERATION Film Festival is launching Kentucky’s FIRST and ONLY film festival that showcases the talents of high school aged students who are making short films and short documentaries.
In addition, the REEL GENERATION Film Festival has been endorsed by the Kentucky Film Office, which is “responsible for marketing the state [of Kentucky] to the film, television, and advertising industries.”
A group of citizens in our small town of Glasgow, Kentucky envisioned such an opportunity and felt that the town’s beloved Plaza Theatre would make an ideal venue for the event. 
As you may know, Glasgow is located in South Central Kentucky in the county of Barren with a population of roughly 15,000 residents. The city is well-known for the Annual Glasgow Highland Games, celebrating Scottish heritage and, in 2007, The Progressive Farmer Magazine named Barren County the #1 rural county in America.
The festival will be held July 15th and 16th at the Plaza Theatre, and open to the public for viewing.
We are asking you to help us, help students in your area receive recognition for their talents on the big screen, as well as a chance to walk down our small town red carpet. Cash prizes and other awards will be offered.
