I just found out that the annual AFI/Discovery Channel SilverDocs Documentary Festival is accepting 13-19 year olds’ work. The entry has to be in by April 1st, under 10 minutes and posted on YouTube. TeenDocs will show the top three entries at the festival this June at the AFI SilverDocs Theatre (right down the street from Discovery headquarters). Documentaries are a great format for your students to emulate for their class projects.

    I agree – documentaries are a great format for class projects. TeenDocs is awesome because students have the ability to inspire one another, and by having their work posted online for all the world to see, they have something memorable to be proud of, which will instill in them a sense of confidence that will guide them well into successful adulthoods.
