The 13TH ANNUAL NATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL FOR TALENTED YOUTH.jpg

NFFTY is one of the world's largest and most influential festivals for emerging filmmakers. Join us!

NFFTY is overwhelmingly positive. NFFTY is a perfect test ground for what it’s like to be a filmmaker in today’s world. It’s the most positive festival I’ve ever been to in terms of encouraging creative work.
— Kevin Klauber, NFFTY alumnus & editor of the Oscar-winning Documentaries, 20 FEET FROM STARDOM and ICARUS
