Generation Short Film Comp Image

Now in its 19th year, we’re excited for the return of the 24/7 Youth Film Festival. Open to ages 12 – 24, the short film comp is a great way for young people to gain or increase experience in film.  Show off or hone your talents, creating imaginative short films while competing for fantastic prizes and the prestige of seeing your work up on the big screen.
