Call for Student Film Makers: YoFi Fest’s Quaran-Teen Cinema Showcase
Deadline: January 17, 2021
With the support of AT&T, YoFi Fest is presenting a collection of short films by teenagers sharing their stories, thoughts, feelings, and experiences about how the Covid-19 pandemic and quarantine has affected their lives.
YoFi Fest, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit with the mission of promoting arts and culture through film festivals, lectures, workshops, screenings and similar activities. DMAC (a/k/a Digital Media Art Center, pronounced “dee-mack”), opened in 2018, is a year-round classroom and lecture hall designed to present a wide variety of screenings, educational workshops, and events in two unique environments.
Teens are invited to make and submit two-minute films that can be scripted, documentary, interviews, music videos, animation, dance, poems, puppet shows, or whatever format best tells the story. The films will be presented free online in February and all participating filmmakers will receive a Certificate of Accomplishment (great to include when applying to schools and jobs!).
While they may not be able to gather in real life, teenagers can use this showcase to create positive awareness and support for one another and the issues they care about. YoFi Fest wants them to know that they are not alone and we are all in this together.
ENTRY FEE: Free for all teenage students
