And we really love films made by youths! You should check some out at the National Film Festival For Talented Youth, a.k.a. NFFTY.
The festival showcases work from filmmakers ranging in age from 7 (yes, 7) to 22, and the subjects range from a couple of Australian kids trying to surf their way across the U.S. to the incredible members of Def Dance Jam Workshop in Harlem.
See what happens when a bunch of talented youth use film to speak about social justice, environmental change, and chicken cowboys.
The festival runs from Apr 24-26 at SIFF Cinema, Cinerama, and EMP|SFM. 10 short films open the festival at Cinerama this Friday with an after party at EMP.
Do not miss it. Do. not.
