Call for Submissions: YoungCuts Film Festival 2011

Call for Submissions: YoungCuts Film Festival 2011 

The YoungCuts Film Festival is looking for Great Short Films by the World's Best Young Filmmakers (25 and under).

Started in 2001 as the Toronto International Teen Film Festival, the festival changed its name (and increased its age limit) in 2005 and moved to Montreal in 2006.

Every year, the festival selects it's Top 100 short films from more than a thousand submissions from more than 30 countries.

We present awards in multiple categories including the High Fidelity HDTV award for Best Documentary, the Tribute.ca award for Best Canadian Film, the EnPrimeur.ca award for Best Quebec Film, the MyFilmmaker.com award for Best Short Short (film under 5 minutes) and the TextbookVideos.com award for Best Educational Film amongst many other prizes.

Part of our larger mandate is to find and create paying film projects for young filmmakers, like the films we did for Canadian Heritage's Canada's Got Treasures! project.We do this through our sister site www.MyFilmmaker.com. If you need to hire a filmmaker or if you are a filmmaker who needs to be hired, come give us a try!

Take a look at Last Year's Winners! And the Top 100 films from last year!

You can apply on-line through withoutabox.com:

Our regular deadline for the Festival is March 31st, but we accept films until June 15th.
(But the earlier that you submit though, the better your chance for your film to be accepted.)
