May 1 Deadline Approaching for MyView Youth Film Festival!

April 15, 2024

Got a smartphone or a camera? That’s all you need to become the next big filmmaker at the MyView Youth Film Festival. If you live, work or play in Eastern Ontario, it’s time to get creative because we want YOUR short films by May 1!

Youth perspectives are key to building vibrant communities. This is your chance to have your voice heard and maybe see your film screened in the historic Brockville Arts Centre at the Awards Ceremony on June 12.

There are over $3000 in prizes available in the following categories:

  • Best Overall Video – $1000
  • I Love My Community – $750
  • Best Original Music – $500
  • YMCA of Eastern Ontario Award – $500
  • Age Category Prizes (10-13; 14-17; 18-24)

Films must be 5 minutes or less and showcase your unique perspective. Judging criteria favours the content and entertainment value over the production elements, in hopes of encouraging all eligible youth (ages 10-24), regardless of their level of experience, to participate and share their stories.
