Preparations are underway for the 10th Annual Ellensburg Film Festival! We will be screening another amazing program of local and international films this fall, October 3-5, 2014. In the run-up to the festival, keep an eye out for Ellensburg Film Festival (EFF) volunteers at these events:

Jazz in the Valley, July 25 - 27, historic downtown Ellensburg

Teen Filmmaking Workshop, August 5 -7, Ellensburg Public Library

Developed in partnership with the Ellensburg Public Library, this six-hour course gives local teens an opportunity to learn about the filmmaking process by creating short films. Working collaboratively, teams will script, record and edit their movies, with the results screened at the  10th Annual Ellensburg Film Festival!   Teen Filmmaking Workshop

One of last year's participants, Grace Pearson, and her brother Luke, recently won the 2014 Washington State Library/Collaborative Summer Reading Program Teen Video Challenge. This is the second year in a row that a Teen Filmmaking Workshop student has won the challenge. Sarah Manning picked up the prize for the 2013 challenge. Check out Grace and Sarah's winning entries.
