Entering its ninth year, the Five-Minute Student Documentary Contest is an innovative and fun celebration of young Massachusetts High School student filmmakers. The doc genre is wide and varied and is open to all kinds of creative approaches.

The Top Ten films will be screened on Saturday, March 4 at 10am, at CinemaSalem, and cash prizes of $100, $50, and $25 will be awarded to the top three films. The competition is limited to works that are less than five minutes in duration, and which have been produced in 2016 and 2017.

The Five-Minute Student Doc Contest is sponsored by CinemaSalem and Salem Film Fest.
