  • Theme & Film Requirements

    The Burleson ISD Film Festival challenges students in K-12 to produce either a narrative or animation/stop-motion film. This year’s theme is suspense. Along with the theme, student filmmakers must include three items in their short film: 

    1. Prop: An umbrella
    2. Camera angles/shots: Over the shoulder
    3. Line of dialogue: Where do we go from here?

    Students are encouraged to think of creative ways to incorporate the theme, prop, and dialogue into their films.

    The district contest will showcase clips of campus finalists' videos throughout the event. During the film festival, each category (narrative and animation) runner up and grand prize, and viewer’s choice videos will be shown. There will be a total of 10 videos shown*:
