If you are a teenager who has a knack for making movies, here's the chance to get your short film critiqued by people who know what they're talking about.
The seventh annual Teen Film Fest (and After Party!) will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 16, at the Arlington Heights Memorial Library, 500 N. Dunton Ave. The public is invited to see the films.
The contest, sponsored by the library, Metropolis Performing Arts Centre and the Arlington Heights Arts Commission, is for teens 12- 18. Submit your film by Friday, Aug. 9, and you could win one of six $50 cash prizes.
The film fest will be judged by Daily Herald film critic Dann Gire, Arts Commissioner Toni Higgins Thrash and Metropolis playwright Scott Woldman.
Everyone is invited to view the films, followed by a teens-only after-party from 9 to 10 p.m. in the Hub, the new space for teens at Arlington Heights Memorial Library, featuring refreshments, cool music and games.
