The Olu Muse Film Contest is a creative way to discover new voices around the community and bring them to life. When the theme is announced, aspiring and established filmmakers alike use their cell phones or cameras to shoot a short film on the topic. All films will be screened during a premier and the top audience-favorites will win awards!
