Film Festival Submissions

The purpose of the film festival is to highlight how schools and agencies are using videos to support their work in PBIS. This is a light-hearted competition to acknowledge videos from a variety of categories.

The film festival occurs each year during the Minnesota PBIS Institute. We encourage teams to submit a video even if you are unable to attend the conference.
