Reel Youth Film Festival seeking local youth films

The Reel Youth Film Festival (RYFF) in conjunction with the Cumberland Community Schools Society (CCSS) is once again seeking film submissions from local youth.

“Last year we were so excited to double our local film content from the previous year and showcase five local films. This event continues to grow and we love being able to provide a venue for filmmakers to feature their work,” said Kate Ashton, program co-ordinator for CCSS.

“Please help us spread the word to as many youth filmmakers as possible. Films can be anything including music videos, skate videos, funny content and dramatic content. You can even use your phone if the resolution is high enough. Everyone can be a filmmaker.”

Each film should be between three to five minutes long, and be created by youth 19 and under. Adult help is permited, but must be disclosed on the submission form. Submission forms and more information can be found by emailing Kate Ashton at ccss.youthcoordinator@gmail.com.

The submission deadline is Friday, Feb. 8, 2019.

The Reel Youth Film Festival is being hosted by Cumberland youth as a fundraiser for the CCSS Youth Centre. The film night will take place March 2 at the Cumberland Community School.

The RYFF has a yearly call for submissions and then their youth council decides which films will become part of that years festival.

The festival kicks off at the Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF) and then tours across the country with a stop in Cumberland. Local films submitted here will be shown at our film night and then forwarded to the RYFF Youth Council for application to the 2019 touring festival. To view last years films, go to www.reelyouth.ca
