Ohio Shorts 2010 Youth Division Screening

Ohio Shorts

New short works by filmmakers and media artists from across the Buckeye state.

Sat, May 8, 2010 4:30 PM

Lots of teens are making movies at home and at school and showing their projects on blogs and YouTube. Here’s a chance to see what some of these young media artists have been up to—in a theatrical setting.

Music videographer Ryan Schlagbaum, teen photographer and writer Tamiko Hess, and Jennifer Lange, the Wexner Center’s associate curator of media arts, selected the works for the Youth Division program (featuring artists age 18 and under). They have also chosen a number of prize winning works, including films by Sittikiat “Bank” Saelim (first prize), Kamerynn Harrah(second prize), Luc Robitaille (third prize), and Lindiwei Farrow-Harris (honorable mention). Those attending will have a chance to cheer on their own favorites in the popular “Audience Choice” competition.

The finalists for a public service announcement commission from Cardinal Health Foundation are Prentiss Haney, Kamerynn Harrah, Luc Robitaille, Sittikiat “Bank” Saelim, and Olivia Smith, with alternate Emily Messick. Finalists will receive a $1,000 stipend from Cardinal Health (and ongoing technical support from the Wexner Center) for participating in a preliminary strategy session and creating a 30-second spot. Once those spots are completed, one of the artists will be selected for an additional $2500 prize and may have their piece broadcast nationally.

Stick around after the Youth Division screening for a reception honoring the artists starting at about 5:30 PM and for the evening screening (works by artists 19+) at 7 PM. See the complete screening schedule here.

The Youth Division of Ohio Shorts is presented with generous support from Cardinal Health Foundation.
