FLINT, Mich. - June 7, 2023 - PRLog -- Over 1,000 submissions have been received for the 8th Annual Flint Youth Film Festival announced today by Executive Producer, Rodney W. Brown.
The Flint Youth Film Festival introduces the art of filmmaking to young filmmakers between the ages of 13 and 25. It provides young filmmakers with venues for developing their storytelling talents. The program provides opportunities to share creative work with peers, the public, and professional filmmakers. By introducing our youth to the film industry, the program provides them with new media to express their creativity, improve their communication skills, and benefit their community.
The festival entrants are divided into three age groups, 13-15, 16-18, 19-21 and 22-25 years of age. The two older groups' films are divided into fiction, nonfiction, experimental and animation open to all ages.
Craft awards also are presented for writing, directing, and cinematography for the two older groups. Other awards given, which are determined by judges, are The Industry Award, The Heart Award, which is for a film that shows passion from the entrant(s) which outshine all others. And, of course, there is the Audience Choice Award.
The Flint Youth Film Festival is sponsored by iMichigan Productions, Flint Institute of Arts, Michigan Humanities Council, Share Art Genesee, James A. Welch Foundation, A.G. Bishop Charitable Trust, and the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation. This activity is supported in part by Michigan Arts and Culture Council and the National Endowment for the Arts.
