Greetings from Iowa Public Television. We’re reaching out to let you know about an exciting opportunity for students--The Film Lounge: Student Challenge. This new program challenges Iowa students in grades 7 to 12 to submit 2- to 5-minute films on the theme “After Hours.” Students whose films are selected will receive statewide recognition and an invitation to join the Film Lounge Academy, with a red-carpet premiere and workshops with industry pros. 

This new educational program has emerged from the ongoing partnership between Iowa Public Television, the Iowa Arts Council and Produce Iowa. More information about submitting films, and how-to tips can be found at

If you don’t feel you’re the right contact for this information, please forward it to any of your colleagues who you feel may be interested. Or hit reply and send us those contacts and we’ll send information to them. Thank you for your time.
