The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (SMFA) has been educating artists since its founding in 1876, fostering creativity and growth in a self-directed, interdisciplinary environment. The School is committed to supporting young, talented artists, and is pleased to collaborate with Latino Art Beat on its 2014 national film competition by awarding a scholarship to the winning student filmmaker.

Latino Art Beat (LAB) is a Chicago-based, national non-for-profit arts organization in its 17th year of providing awards and scholarships to high school students through various visual arts competitions. LAB has formed a partnership with the 10th Annual HollyShorts Film Festival, which will offer a new film competition category specifically for young filmmakers titled, “Youth Film Competition 2014.”

The winner of the “Youth Film Competition 2014” category will be given a $10,000 scholarship for each of the four years that the student is enrolled in the SMFA BFA program at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts. The winning film work(s) will be screened during the festival in August 2014 at the world-famous TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, California. For more information on submissions, visit
