Submissions are now open for ATMI’s annual youth film screening “After School Special,” as part of this year’s Anchorage International Film Festival.

Filmmakers must be 21 years old or younger.

Films must be no longer than 10 minutes long and must have been made in 2021.

All genres accepted, but please be tasteful with your content. (Some films may be labeled with a disclaimer for more adult-themed content. Films that include content that ATMI staff deem unsuitable for youth audiences may be disqualified for selection.)

Submissions close November 29, 2021 at 11:59 p.m.

Then join us for the in-person screening of the selected films! After School Special will be held at the Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center on December 10th at 3pm. Following the screening, there will be a live Q&A with participating filmmakers.

There will also be awards: Judge’s Choice Award, the ATMI Golden Yeti Award, and an Audience Choice Award.

Attendees must provide proof of vaccination to attend and wear a mask during the event.
