On behalf of the Reel Generation Film Festival, I would like to announce Kentucky’s
fourth annual film festival that showcases the talents of high school students who are
making short films and short documentaries. To our knowledge, it is the only film festival
that provides these film opportunities to any high school student in the Commonwealth of
Kentucky. In addition, the Reel Generation Film Festival has been endorsed by the
Kentucky Film Office, which is “responsible for marketing the state [of Kentucky] to the film,
television, and advertising industries.”
A group of citizens in our city of Glasgow, Kentucky envisioned such an opportunity and
felt that the town’s historic Plaza Theatre would make an ideal venue for the event. As you
may know, Glasgow is located in South Central Kentucky in the county of Barren with a
population of roughly 15,000 residents. The city is well-known for the Annual Glasgow
Highland Games, celebrating Scottish heritage and, in 2007, The Progressive Farmer
Magazine named Barren County the #1 rural county in America.
The festival will be held Saturday, April 12th, 2014 at the Glasgow Plaza Theatre and will
be open to the public for viewing. As a retired Kentucky School Superintendent, I am
asking each of you to help us to assist students in your school district or area participate
and receive recognition for their talents on the big screen, as well as a chance to walk down
our small town’s red carpet. Cash prizes and other awards will be offered.
For more information about the Reel Generation Film Festival, including how to enter,
fees, rules, etc., visit or email
[email protected] You may also want to visit our Plaza Theatre link at
Deadline to enter is Friday, March 28, 2014.
