What is the Malta Youth Film Festival?
The Malta Youth Film Festival, a collaboration between Aġenzija Żgħażagħ and the Malta Film Foundation, is a competitive platform for young film makers to encourage them to enter their films for awards under the following headings:
• Best script
• Best direction
• Most original concept
• Best actor
• Best cinematography
• Best overall film.
Films submitted for awards can cover any topic and should not be more than 10 mins in duration. A specialised jury will select the award winners and at Awards Night clips from all the nominated films will be screened. The general public can also vote for their preferred film through a Public Choice Award.
Who is it for?
The Malta Youth Film Festival is for young film makers aged from 16 to 30.
Submissions are accepted from individuals and groups.
What will it do for me?
The Malta Youth Film Festival allows participants to publicly showcase their films and have them reviewed. The maker of the Best Overall Film receives a cash prize and a trip to an international film festival, which also includes participation in a film workshop.
