FSN to Launch Sports-Film Festival


Fox Sports Net will offer student filmmakers an opportunity to intern at its Best Damn Sports Show Period show during the summer as part of its inaugural filmmaking competition.

The first annual "Best Damn Sports Show Period Student Film Festival," presented by Sony Electronics Corp., will provide aspiring filmmakers with hands-on educational opportunities to develop and prove their filmmaking- or television-production skills, the network said.

Grand-prize winners in the fiction category will receive a summer internship with 20th Century Fox Films, while nonfiction winners will earn an internship this summer at BDSSP.

Both grand-prize winners also receive the latest "Digital Handycam Camcorder" from Sony, the network said.
