NFFTY 2012 Film Submissions are Open

18 Oct

Calling filmmakers 22 and under! NFFTY 2012 submissions are now open! Please forward this email to your film students!


Submit films

Early entry fee is $20 through October 31st. Films completed in the current & past school year are eligible.

Final deadline is January 31st.

There is also a discount for multiple entries, so as a school submitting more than one film under the same account, the first entry fee is full price, with additional entries 50% off.


NFFTY is the largest and most influential youth film festival in the world. In 2011, we screened 225 amazing films from the best filmmakers 22 and younger representing 40 states and 20 countries. NFFTY 2012 (April 26-29) will be even bigger, with over 10,000 expected in attendance. Here is a short video to get an idea of what NFFTY means to youth filmmakers.


We have added an exciting new program to NFFTY 2012: The Future of Film Expo – April 27th & 28th. It will feature exhibits from film schools/universities, film/tech companies, brands/products and film organizations. We also will have speakers, workshops, and product demos. We encourage you and your students to come to this exciting event – it’s free to attend! If you are interested in learning more about how to organize a field trip, please contact me and I will be happy to help.
