The Fifth Annual Screen Test Student Fest will be held Saturday night, April 16th, at The Prairie Center for the Arts in Schaumburg. Sponsored by The Illinois Institute of Art – Schaumburg and Tribeca Flashpoint Media Arts Academy, this year’s competition features 14 short films created by teenagers from the Chicago area and suburbs. The entries were chosen by a panel of judges to compete for awards such as Best in Show ($250 prize), 2nd Place ($150 prize), 3rd Place ($100) Achievement in Writing ($100), and Highest Production Values ($100).

Saturday’s event will kick off at 7:00 PM, when those attending will have an opportunity to meet with representatives from The Illinois Institute of Art – Schaumburg and Tribeca Flashpoint Media Arts Academy in the lobby. The student-run BJB Productions will be showing a three-minute movie called Horizon Rainfall on two screens in the gallery during that first hour, and the Palatine High School Digital Media Studio plans to project artistic imagery on an outside wall of the Prairie Arts Center if the weather permits.

The actual competition begins at 8:00 PM, with a varied line-up that includes animation by Peter Gundling (82 Westing Street), Kyle Rawlinson (Waiting for Time), and Ray Bach (Watch Where You’re Going). There are dramas by Anna Price (Silence), and Joseph Kosty (The Address); and nonfiction entries from Jasmine Camarillo (Dearborn Homes: A Dialogue); Tia Sanders (Let’s Dance); Deja Ashford, Crystal Henderson, Kelsey Phillips, Khadijah Robinson, and Jackie Taylor (LGBT Youth In Chicago); Kyle Rawlinson (Never Fell Out Of Love); and Brittany Douglas (Why Choose Me). The comedic entries come from Kristen Dawidiuk (I Gotta Shovel); Scott Durand and Joe Melone (Jamaican Me Crazy); and Joseph Kosty (Santa’s Revenge); and there will be a music video by Dan Michie called Drumming Baudio.

The Prairie Center for the Arts is located at 201 Schaumburg Ct. in Schaumburg. Tickets can be purchased at the Center’s website and are $10 for adults, $5 for students and seniors. Tickets purchased for the competition can also be used for admittance to the special Screen Test Event screening of Brad Hansen’s feature film, Driver’s Ed Mutiny on Friday, April 15th at 8:00 PM.
