High school seniors with a high-quality film submission will be considered for a UPIKE film and media arts scholarship. The festival is accepting free film submissions from filmmakers with connection to Kentucky, Virginia, and West Virginia, and paid film submissions from filmmakers of other states or countries. All entries must be submitted by February 24, 2019.
