Organizers of the Student Film Fest are pleased to announce that the festival will continue next year. As in years past, students in grades 4 through 12 from throughout San Mateo County will be invited to make short videos on the environmental topic of their choice. Past entries have included original music that has been performed and recorded, stop-motion techniques, live action, comedy, collaborations and more. The means of expression is up to the filmmakers.

Cash prizes will be awarded in three categories: elementary school., middle school and high school.

The 2021 Film Fest will be cosponsored by the Burlingame Environmental Club (BEC) at Burlingame High School and CEC. BEC will conduct a free filmmaking workshop on January 23. The deadline for entries will be March 1, and the festival will take place on March 23. It is likely that both the workshop and festival will be held virtually.
