About the Festival: 
The Jim Harbin Student Media Festival is a student-driven program where students create media presentations from idea, to storyboard, to production, to presentation. Students work creatively to design and produce a media forum for their message and compete state-wide with students from each county in Florida. 
The Jim Harbin Student Media Festival is put on my FAME - Florida Association for Media in Education and has been around for 46+ years!  It was Jim Harbin's vision and is FAME's vision to teach, encourage and recognize Florida's student media producers.  Student filmmakers learn many valuable lessons from equipment usage & care to copyright laws to protect artists like themselves.  We  celebrate the learning and creativity of Florida's young artists.
