The Slick Rock Student Film Festival is Central California's premier film competition for middle and high school students in Fresno, Kern, Kings, Madera, Mariposa, Merced, and Tulare counties. It is a program of the Tulare County Office of Education with support from the Tulare & Kings Counties Suicide Prevention Task Force.
Slick Rock challenges students to meet industry standards in the technical aspects of film production. The competition is divided into two levels: middle school and high school. Each level offers a variety of film genres for participation.
The 18th Annual Slick Rock Student Film Festival awards ceremony, scheduled to be held at the Fox Theater in downtown Visalia, was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, ABC30 aired an awards ceremony on May 30, 2021 at 6:30 p.m. featuring the winning videos from each category. The winning videos are posted below.
Nearly 300 videos from 35 schools throughout the Central Valley were submitted by more than 500 middle and high school students. The films designated as the Premiere Cut films, which are the ones that would have been shown throughout the day at the Fox Theater, will be available to view here after the awards program airs.
