Due September 2nd, 2018 - Austin Film Festival was the first organization of its kind to focus on the writer's creative contribution to film. Now entering its 25th year, AFF still hinges on its original mission: to further the art and craft of storytelling.

They love being able to do that with the next generation, which is why they've built a robust Young Filmmakers Program (YFP) that includes a FREE film competition for young filmmakers ages 12-18. By introducing young people to filmmaking and its industry, YFP aims to provide new mediums for creative expression, improve communication skills, and cultivate the local arts community.

At the Young Filmmakers Showcase – which screens twice during the 25th Annual Austin Film Festival – selected animated, documentary, and narrative short films from all around the world will play on the big screen in front of a supportive audience of festival-goers.

Entries should be no more 12 minutes in length.
