International Youth Arts Film Festival - Applications open

It has been a difficult year for so many and we can’t wait to experience the energy, inspiration and hope which young people and our festival audiences bring to Kingston once again. Sharing the creative talents of young people is more important than ever before. 

Across the globe there are many film festivals throughout the year, but few who have a true focus on young emerging film makers. International Youth Arts Film Festival is here to provide an affordable platform for young film makers to get one of their first experiences of a film festival. There is the opportunity to showcase your films to an audience in the historic venue of Rose Theatre, have your films watched by an industry panel and enter our awards. 

There are 3 categories available to apply to:

  • International Film Category
    Non-UK applicant filmmakers with any film that is 15 minutes and under

  • Films under 5-minutes
    These films must be 5 minutes and under

  • Short Film Category
    These films must be between 10-15 minutes in length

At least one member of the creative team in each application must be under 27. This applies to all categories.
