Make a short phone movie (5-10 minutes) based on a fairy tale or folktale.

  • You may invent/write your own fairy tale or folk tale.
  • For fairy tales or folktales in the public domain, that is published before January 1st, 1925, you can film an exact scene of the work. 
  • For works after January 1st, 1925, you must transform the work to make it your own. 

 For example, if you wanted to film part of Hans Christian Anderson’s fairy tale “The Little Mermaid”, you could film and use any dialog or scene from the story.  If you wanted to film any part of Disney’s Little Mermaid, you must transform it into an original work like a parody. 

There will be classes on the use of phones to film movies, editing, lighting, screenwriting, makeup, and costuming.

  • All members must be listed on the submission.  
  • You do not have to attend the classes to enter a video.
  • You can work alone or in groups. While actors and assistants do not have to be teens, the director must be 13-18 years old.
  • No professional assistance outside the classes.
  • No profanity, nudity, or excessive violence.  It would be rated PG-13 or less.
  • Entries must be submitted to teen librarian Elizabeth by Sunday, July 26 at 5pm.
  • Entries will be posted on social media for the public to vote on for best movie.

For any questions and to submit your video, contact Elizabeth 
at engelman@mfplibrary.org
