Festival Overview

The American Youth Film Festival™ is an opportunity for the youth to showcase their movie making skills. Many young people regularly produce movies that are then posted on websites such as YouTube and Facebook. We want to capture that interest and channel it to understand the “love of film or film making” through the eyes of youth filmmakers.

Who Can Participate?
The American Youth Film Festival™ is open to ALL YOUTH regardless of race, creed, or national origin that are currently enrolled in elementary school, middle school, high school or college. Suggested submissions and entry fees will be in one of four categories, elementary school ($20.00), middle school ($30.00), high school ($40.00) or college ($50.00). Film must be works directed and/or produced by elementary school, middle school, high school or college students. Adult supervision must be limited to an advisory capacity only.

All film (national and international) may be submitted into only one category, however, film makers may submit additional entries with separate forms and entry fees. All entries have specific time limits including titles and credits unless otherwise noted. The American Youth Film Festival is a family event therefore, NO ENTRIES MAY CONTAIN NUDITY, PROFANITY or EXCESSIVE VIOLENCE.
