We are looking for exciting and innovative films made BY children and young people from across the UK. The films can be shorts in any genre (fiction, documentary, animation) and in any format up to 10 minutes long. With an established reputation as the most interactive young peoples' Festival in the United Kingdom with over 5000 participants each year, we want films that will excite and motivate our audiences and that showcase the best and newest young filmmakers from around the country.
