Youth Film Festival Calls for Entries

The Nimbin Youth Film Festival is on once again for 2017 and is set to be another fantastic festival, with cash prizes and trophies to be won. The festival aims to encourage young people to tell their stories via the powerful medium of film. NYFF celebrates the creative expressions of our local youth, and creates an opportunity for young voices to be showcased to the broader community.

The films can be made on any video device from an I Phone or DSLR camera or a Go Pro to high-end video cameras. The judges are much more interested in the stories being told than technical perfection.

All young people aged 0 – 18 years old are eligible to enter the competition. Entries are accepted from residents from the Clarence River to the Tweed River. As long as the vision and idea for the film comes from young people and they are the drivers/ directors, then the film can be entered.

The festival screening and award ceremony will be held at a Pop-Up Cinema in the Nimbin Town Hall at 2pm, Saturday 2nd December 2017, and the whole community is invited to attend.

Entries close Friday 17th November 2017 at 4 pm.
