Lights. Camera. Action. : RootsTech Film Fest.

Last Fall RootsTech, with partner Deseret News, initiated the RootsTech Film Fest. Participants in three categories: youth, amateur, and professional, were to submit a short video (under 3 minutes) centered around the conference theme Connect. Belong.

Videos were posted on YouTube. The 7 Youth, 61 Amateur and 15 Professional semi-finalists are posted at www.rootstechfilmfest.org/vote/.

Judging will be a delightful task. I've not looked at even half so may not have seen the best. Of those I did view I liked Part of the Beat in the Pro category, and Serendipity in the Amateur.

I'm hoping that these might motivate genealogical and family history societies to go beyond writing competitions.
