Future filmmakers may just find their start at the Carolina Film & Video Festival in Greensboro, NC.

Anyone is welcome to submit videos in four categories: animated, narrative, documentary and experimental. The festival has the distinction of being the oldest student-run film festival in North Carolina. As well as giving away awards for best picture, the festival also holds a script competition.
