Submissions: YoungCuts Film Festival 2012
The YoungCuts Film Festival is
looking for Great Short Films by the World's Best Young Filmmakers
(25 and under).
Established in 2001, the
YoungCuts Film Festival is the Premiere Showcase for young, emerging
talent. Every year, the festival selects its Top 100 short films from
more than a thousand films that come from more than 30 countries.
We present awards
in multiple categories including Best Picture, Best Animated Film,
Best Documentary and Best Short Short Film (film under five minutes).
This year, for the first time,
we will be providing an opportunity for filmmakers and the public to
help us select winners by voting on film submissions by filmmakers
who are participating in our 2012 People's Choice program. Anyone
interested in watching or voting for great films will be able to do
so, for the price of
a theatre ticket. Every month, beginning in January, we will have
a new slate of films to vote on and at the end of the month, based on
public voting, we will announce one film pre-selected to the Festival.
To see how it will work,
courtesy of Canadian Heritage, here are a selection of great
films from the Festival that you can watch and vote on for free.
Filmmakers can submit their
films online HERE!
Our Early-Bird deadline is
January 31st. It is cheaper to submit before January 31st and, as
always, the earlier that you submit, the better your chance for your
film to be accepted.
Our regular deadline for the
Festival is March 31st, but we accept films until June 15th.
For more information on
submitting your film go HERE!
