    Which film will earn Best Film at the 2014 Statesboro Film Festival?
    The Statesboro Herald and the Averitt Center for the Arts have teamed up again for the Sixth Annual Statesboro Film Festival to find and honor the best locally made films. The festival will be held at 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 17, at the Averitt Center in downtown Statesboro. A reception will begin at 6:30 p.m.
    Matt Bankhead, the lead producer for Studio Statesboro, the Statesboro Herald Report and director of the 2014 festival, said all entries have been received and the approved films are now posted online at statesborofilmfestival.com for everyone to view and vote on.
    “I'm really pleased with the entries,” Bankhead said. “The filmmakers put a lot of thought into their movies, and it shows.”
    People can vote up to 10 times per day from a single URL address through midnight on Wednesday, April 16. The film with the most votes will earn a special People’s Choice award, and it along with 10 other selected films will be shown on the big screen inside the Emma Kelly Theater Thursday.
    In addition to Best Film and People’s Choice awards, a panel of three judges is viewing all films and will give awards for Best Editing, Best Cinematography and Best Director. The awards will be announced after all films are screened, culminating with the Best Film winner.
    Light refreshments will be served at the prefestival reception, and Millhouse Steakhouse will cater the intermission.
    Tickets for the film festival are $5 and can be purchased at the Averitt Center box office, the Statesboro Herald office or by calling 912.212.2787.
    “It's a great event for Statesboro to show off some great young filmmakers," said Tim Chapman, executive director of the Averitt Center.
    The 2014 Statesboro Film Festival is sponsored by the Statesboro Herald, the Averitt Center for the Arts, Millhouse Steakhouse, Gailey Trophy and Connect Statesboro.
