Check out the City Museum's first-ever Film Contest!

[CLICK HERE] to read more about it. The film contest is only open to students ages 18 and under.

Basically, the goal of the Film Contest is to create a 70.1 second film that illustrates City Museum. Films can be any genre, fiction or nonfiction--whatever--but all filming must take place in City Museum. The rest of the rules and regulations can be found on the link, but it's an awesome opportunity to film your visit to City Museum. And if you've ever been here before, you'll know that there are tons of amazing backdrops that could lead to some interesting films!
