TXU Energy “Light Up the Red Carpet Student Film Contest”
C/O The Marketing Arm Inc.
1999 Bryan St., Suite 1800
Dallas, TX 75201

We are delighted to once again partner with TXU Energy to present this incredible student film contest,” said James Faust, Artistic Director, DALLAS International Film Festival.  “TXU Energy’s support of student filmmakers was a highlight of last year’s festival, and it’s gratifying to be able to recognize the work of these future filmmakers as they compete for these prizes in 2011.”

Speaking of last year, Patty Schubert, head of the film program at Garland High School, which won in 2010, adds: “Along with the money we received, our students were given an experience of a lifetime at the awards ceremony at the DALLAS International Film Festival.  We are forever grateful to and thrilled that TXU Energy is willing to do this again.”

The amazing partnership of the DFS and TXU has created this wonderful contest to help focus our young student filmmakers and to help them gain a head start in their careers.

Texans are rethinking how we use energy,” said Michael Grasso, chief marketing officer for TXU Energy. “Energy efficiency saves money, is good for the environment and is good for Texas. Our commitment to invest $100 million in conservation and energy efficiency activities demonstrates that, and this video competition is just one way that others can help all of us explore our energy future through the film medium.”

To enter, students must be enrolled at a participating high school or university. Entries must be received by January 28, 2011.

Videos should be appropriate to theme and follow contest guidelines. Interested participants should contact the The Dallas Film Society to find out if their school is eligible.

Each winning high school will receive the following cash Technology Grants for its film program: 1st place prize is $7,500; 2nd place prize is $5,000; and 3rd place prize is $2,500.

Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared
to be on the net the simplest thing to be
aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that they just
do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without
having side-effects , people can take a signal.
Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
