2016 Film Fest

The 2016 Balloon Fiesta Film Fest

The 2016 Balloon Fiesta Student Filmmaker Challenge provided student filmmakers the opportunity to develop short films/digital videos at the 2016 Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta presented by Canon. Teams had the opportunity to work with all‐new top‐of‐the‐line filming equipment provided by Canon for shooting their video, including personal equipment training by Canon equipment specialists and personal creative counsel the week before Balloon Fiesta.

The event was limited to a total of ten (10) teams of no more than four (4) people per team. Team members must have been enrolled at a high school, college or university that is accredited by the State of New Mexico.

This year’s Challenge was to create 60 second advertisements to promote different aspects of the Balloon Fiesta. Submitted works featured original footage captured at Balloon Fiesta Park, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, October 1-2, 2016.
