This year marks the 5th anniversary of the Clear the Air Film Fest – a huge accomplishment! Bay Area students have consistently submitted insightful, creative, innovative and provoking work that is changing the conversation about lung health and clean air. And thanks to their inspirational work, the festival continues to grow, attracting widespread attention and some amazing judges.

This year, we are excited to invite adult filmmakers to join the conversation and submit their films to be screened. These professional filmmakers will serve as an inspiration to the student filmmakers and will also provide much-needed networking for the young artists who may be just starting out in their careers.

This is also the first year that we are opening up the competition to middle school students. As digital media becomes more and more prevalent, middle schoolers (and younger!) are using it tell their own stories. The Clear the Air Film Fest is proud to support these young filmmakers and encourage them to continue to express themselves through film.

We are so excited to see what you all create and we can’t wait to share it with you! So get submitting!
