Congratulations to the 2013 PSF&VF filmmakers! Our festival continues to grow, and we received nearly 200 original films from high-school and college age students from around the world. We thank all of the filmmakers who submitted their work for consideration. There were so many outstanding films submitted this year and while we could not include them all, we are very grateful for the time spent in the creative process of making the films and then the additional effort in submitting them to us for consideration.
