Adelaide Film Festival – YOUTH

AFF YOUTH is the newest arm of the festival. Previously known as the Adelaide International Youth Film Festival, this program is designed to showcase and screen the best professionally made and independently made films for a youth audience, complementing the main program with the same theme, but adapted for a younger audience aged 5 to 18. Submissions to AFF YOUTH for 2020 are now open! AFF is calling for submissions from local and international filmmakers and is open to feature films (generally over 60 minutes), feature documentaries, series (single or multiple episodes), shorts (no longer than 10 minutes) and VR works (drama, documentary, hybrid, experimental and animation). These can be any length or genre.

For more information, including general guidelines and awards and prizes, visit the official submissions page.

Submissions must be received by the official closing date of Friday, 29 May at 5pm.
