This is the voice of the next generation. All films in this package have been created by filmmakers between the ages of 5-18yrs, and showcase a range of topics, filmmaking styles and techniques. These films highlight universal similarities, whilst showing how diverse we are as global citizens. Filmmakers in this package come from our own backyard, as well as countries including Poland, India, Philippines and the Faroe Islands.

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.
