"Free 4 All Film and Animation Fest" is the initiative of the Fairfax Academy's Professional Graphics Studio and in conjunction with MHz Cable NETWORK “National Shortie Awards” to sponsor a area-wide high school student film and animation festival. The idea was to have a venue for local student filmmakers and animators to see and share the work of others. It is hoped that the festival will highlight the best of our hig h school student filmmakers and animators and give opportunity to view the creativity and skill of young filmmakers and animators as it expands to other counties over the yearsHow the Festival Works

Students are asked to choose a category in which to submit a film or animation. The entries are then sent out to a team of judges, usually local professional artist, filmmakers, media experts, and animators. The judges score the entries in a particular entry category and the five highest rated films in each category are presented on the night of the festival.

Awards At the conclusion of the screenings, the Best of Show in Animation and Film/Video will be announced and awarded a monetary prize plus gifts from Mythic Game Company and Autodesk. A People's Choice award plaque plus prozes will be awarded by audience vote to one Animation short and one Film/Video work. Certificates of Participation will be presented to all participating students. The Best of Show award winners will receive special recognition at the National MHz NETWORK “Shortie Awards”
