The Albany Pine Bush Preserve is accepting films made by kids for its Karner Kids Film Festival.

“This is a great opportunity for kids and teens to show us their perspective on the Pine Bush through film making,” said Education Program Manager Sara Poggi-Decker in a release from the preserve.

The festival is open to kids ages 10 to 17. The films must be original creations of five minutes or less and must be about the Albany Pine Bush. Films could feature wildlife, plants, history, personal experience, or other Pine Bush-inspired themes.

Films may be submitted online and must be received by 4 p.m. on Oct. 31. In December, the filmmakers will be celebrated with a virtual film festival.
