JAMESTOWN — The Prendergast Library will hold a film festival on Feb. 9, featuring short films submitted by members of the community.

Participants can visit the Makerspace throughout the month of January to work on their film with free equipment and assistance. Films must not exceed five minutes in length, or contain inappropriate content.

The four winning films will be played in the Community Room of the Library on Feb. 9, at 3:30 p.m. First prize will be given “The Prendy Award” along with a $25 gift card. The three runners-up will receive a “Prendy Jr. Award” and a book sale voucher.
