Staff Pick: Arnold Sports Film Festival

Columbus Alive

The lucky filmmaker who wins the top prize at the first Arnold Sports Film Festival, a new addition to the sports festival's lineup, will get the chance to visit Arnold Schwarzenegger on the set of a Hollywood movie. You know what that means? The former California governor is returning to the big screen!

The fest is a collection of sports-related short films made by professionals and students. Entries, all fewer than 15 minutes long, will range from documentaries and narratives to animated movies. Football favorite Eddie George will serve as the awards host, and Schwarzenegger will sit on the panel of judges. Tickets to the festival are $15, but entry is free with an armband from the sports festival.
