10th anniversary best of show features indie movie-making contest winners

A local movie-making contest marking its 10th anniversary will host a Best of Winterfilm public screening of its top winners Aug. 24 at the Mariemont Theatre.

Ten winning short movies—none longer than 10 minutes—date back to the first contest in 2014. The most recent debuted in April this year at the event’s awards ceremony.

The contest takes place each February. Teams have one month to write, cast, shoot, edit and cut a good story using a specified theme and prop. Submissions are judged by volunteers.
