2020 Finalists

The Second Annual Sailing Film Festival went virtual and we changed some of the rules, but we also really upped the ante on the prizes. The Grand Prize for ALL contestants was $1,000 cash! On top of that, both age categories had 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners ($250, $150 and $100 prizes, respectively).

This was a short film competition for youth 25 and under split into two age categories; Juniors under 15 and Seniors aged 15-25. The only requirements were that the films had to incorporate the power of wind propulsion in some way, be 3-minutes or less, and be appropriate for all ages. Comedy, drama, action, thrillers, etc. were all accepted.

We had so many fantastic films this year! Hats off to all who submitted and congratulations to the winners. We were truly impressed by the quality of ALL the films.
