10-yr-olds needed for 10-doc

"What's it like to be ten?" In honor of the upcoming 10th Annual Oxford Film Festival, the University of Mississippi's Media & Documentary Projects Center is teaming up with the Oxford Film Festival to create a documentary film starring 10-year-olds from the Oxford/Lafayette County community discussing the joys and trials of being 10 years old. The film will premiere at the Oxford Film Festival, Feb. 21-24, 2013, and the producers are eager to find 10-year-olds in the community to participate in the project.

The first round of interviews for the film will be held Thursday, Nov. 29 and Saturday, Dec. 1 at the Powerhouse Community Arts Center in Oxford. Interviews will only take 15 minutes and those interested can sign up by emailing the director of the film, Joe York (jayork13[at]me.com).

Participants can sign up for a 15-minute time slot at this link.
