A selection of films to be enjoyed by cinephiles of all ages! Through documentary, fiction and animation, the films in this package explore themes including friendship, family, community, identity, and our connection with nature in the age of social media. With lots of light moments and laughter, this session is suitable for audiences young and young at heart.

Update: 21/07

In light of the COVID-19 lockdown beginning on July 21st, the Adelaide Film Festival Youth is disappointed to announce that the inaugural edition of the festival, due to begin on July 25th, will not proceed as planned. 
Safety is our primary concern.
We are consulting with SA Health and Department for Education to explore potential alternative presentation dates and modes, and encourage audiences to hold onto their tickets until contacted by our Box Office team.
