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

INTERESTED IN LEARNING MORE ABOUT THE WORLD OF FILM FESTIVALS? JOIN US AT THIS FREE EVENT!

Navigating the world of film festivals can be daunting as a young filmmaker. Which festivals are most beneficial to attend, and how do you get the most out of attending? How do you figure out which festivals are a potential good fit for your film? How do festivals make programming decisions? What do you do after you’ve had a film accepted or rejected? Get answers to these and many more questions, from programmers, festival directors, and filmmakers.

The workshop is being offered by NFFTY (National Film Festival for Talented Youth), and NWFF (Local Sightings Film Festival). Submissions for NFFTY and Local Sightings are open into July.
